Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020


Recommended Posts

Good to have summer back.

Max of 22c with bountiful sunshine and a decent enough breeze sufficient to keep all of the flies away whilst working outside.

Gorgeous sunset as well, perfect backdrop for the evening walk with friends.

Some more pics from this morning in the Lomond Hills. Just the most sublime colours at sunrise. We had 12cm this morning, sunny all day except for a slight freshening up in the afternoon, now -0.7C an

The snow still hasn't come to anything beyond a slushy mess at the house so we went to the snow. At the small car park at the top of Glen Ogle it was proper snow with a few inches on the ground. By th

Guess who thought it'd be a smart idea to wear shorts and t-shirt as it was fine when I left the house and guess who regretting that now as the rains started DO'H

If that wind would just die down it would be a decent day here even though the cloud hasn't melted away as I thought it would. Temperature sitting between 22/23c and gusts between 2 and 9km/hr. At least it's dry I suppose.  Spoke to a client earlier who is down near Laurencekirk and he had wall to wall sunshine, and it does look to be brighter to the south.

Oh well, it'll soon be gin o'clock and I'll be on holiday for the next two weeks so fingers crossed for decent weather in that time.

Very windy and cloudy here. Started off well but went downhill.

Husband's heart is ok but he is very low in iron, maybe getting an infusion.

Wish him all the best from me.. maybe a tin or 2 of Stout good for iron.

No stout today but did have beer, cider, gin and wine before a heavy shower split up our socially distanced street get together this evening. Max today of 21.8C with sunny intervals and a couple of showers. Clearer and feeling fresher now at 17.3C.

Mainly overcast day but still managed to reach a very respectable 22c.

Dry until 7pm when there was a short but very sharp shower.

Strong SW wind for most of the day.

16c outside at the moment and feeling very humid.

Not often you see thunderstorm advance warnings over two days for this area - mind you, the Met Office forecaster seems to have gone mad with the highlighter and just covered everything...

Once this current crud clears through there might be a bit of stormy fun later - hopefully a walk up my local hill will be required. 😀

This looks tasty for 17:00.

The hill walk was not required - got a twenty minutes downpour from this and that was it! 😄

Monday/Tuesday is looking very lively - precipitation charts to be taken with a pinch of salt at this range of course! These will change about twenty times before the days in question arrive. 😀
 

Selected snapshots for Monday/Tuesday.

If none of us get a storm from all of this I give up on Summer 2020! 😂

Edit: @Mair Snaw great result tonight!

Have a good weekend everyone.

Lovely start to the day and my holiday, sat in the garden having a late breakfast with fairly clear skies and the thermometer reading 23c.

Once the grass has dried a bit more, I'll get the mower out and then do some garden work for the rest of the day...make hay while the sun shines!

21.4 & 21.8°C yesterday and today, but such a different feel. Cloudy and muggy yesterday, whilst fresh and sunny today. Got jobs done including the always pleasant chicken coop mucking out.

Finn just back from the vets with the cone of shame after the op to remove his crown jewels. Aww.

Great day again with blue skies little wind and a maximum of 21c.Things were slow to dry up however as domestic grasses remained wet until late afternoon.

A fine sunset again but not as intense as earlier in the summer. 001.thumb.JPG.7d4f09fbf6186d5462a4110de50fcdcc.JPG003.thumb.JPG.3134a77ad87fcb897265a34cc099fd63.JPG Will soon lose the setting sun to the the NW and darker evenings beckoning.

Spring barley very slow to finish ripening in spite of the sunshine. Still think the cool July has had something to do with it.
