Surprised to see my breath outside just now, even with a outside temperature of 11c.

 

Oh glad to hear someone else experienced that. I pointed it out to colleague this afternoon in West Lothian as we were stood outside talking.

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

Standing an impressive 5ft 5in tall - the kids have done well with limited resources ?

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

Not had the thunder overnight but had quite a bit of rain. The day is young though...............

That was some amount of rain last night! I’d forgotten how noisy rain could be on Velux windows in the dead of night 😏

Heavy rain earlier and still steady heavy drizzle now. I saw just one flash of lightning last night about half eleven, it was awayyy south of me maybe as far as the border.

I love how the areas outside the warning got the thunder/lightning earlier. 😂

Can’t see much happening in the West today - SE/E/NE have a chance later.

As always with thunderstorm forecasts though...😄

All the best!

Edit: Convective weather forecast for today:

WWW.CONVECTIVEWEATHER.CO.UK

Forecasting thunderstorms and severe convective weather across the British Isles and Ireland for up to the next 5 days.

Scottish highlights:

A few isolated elevated thunderstorms will be possible E Scotland and E England during Tuesday daytime.

An increase in thunderstorm coverage, primarily elevated, is expected from Cumbria northwards across a swathe of Scotland during Tuesday night.

Explosive deep convection could evolve by late afternoon and more especially into the evening hours almost anywhere in England, Wales and southern Scotland.

Getting excited again after reading all that! 😄

So the next 6 days are forecast to be reasonably warm and constant cloud in Glasgow.

Any experts willing to advise what's causing the constant grey skies we're experiencing?

Seen one flash earlier but was mainly loud thunder, more cells developing to my w / sw again but if this high cloud could b**ger off that would be great so difficult these days here to see structure 😆

Hazy sun at times here this morning. Feeling humid at 20C. Not one drop of the forecast rain here this morning.

That’s the really annoying thing - love watching the convection building (convective clouds) and of course cumulonimbus approaching surrounded by blue sky! 

Convective weather mentioned a swathe of Scotland at risk of elevated thunderstorms overnight in his forecast...

That looks pretty decent! If it actually happens of course! 😄 

@Ross B Yes it’s game on now the warnings have been cancelled! 😂

As ever...we shall see what happens! Interesting day/night ahead. 

Bring back Summer 2019:

Much better day than I was expecting (cloud did clear for a bit but just came back) but for a while there had decent sun. Now the waiting game to see if there's round 2 (with the bangs this time hopefully)!

Eastern Scotland got a specific storm mention by Chris Fawkes on BBC News 24 weather just now.  Slow moving and one "we'll need to keep an eye on".
