Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020


Recommended Posts

A right old showery day, with some torrential downpours in the early afternoon.

Nice cloudscapes though made up for the sogginess.

Remarkably low diurnal range - low of 13.8c, max of 16.2c.

Moderate wind during the day, now calm.

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

A real mixed bag in Inverurie today. A bit of warm sun but also a few pretty heavy showers. 

After work the wife and I managed to sneak away for the weekend in Braemar, just the two of us and the dog. We reckon it's the first time in over 10yrs that we've managed a break away without any of the 3 kids. 

The dog seems to be enjoying it...

Flour is in plentiful supply in most shops im going in currently.. it was definitely a bit crazy for a few weeks end if March and into April.. what part of deeside are you in? Looked at a house in Ballater last year but couldn't make it work 

I'm in Banchory, been here for 30 years now and can't imagine living anywhere else.

I think there are just too many home bakers in this neck of the woods 😂

Well it's been a dull day in Braemar but only occasional spits of rain and not feeling too cool despite a brisk wind at times. We went for a walk from Linn of Dee, along the minor road, up Glen Quioch, across to Glen Lui, then back to Linn of Dee. As usual photos probably don't do it justice, especially in the overcast light, but I can't remember seeing the Heather so purple and extensive for years, perhaps ever.

A consequence of a warm sunny spring but a cool, wet summer? Either way, it's stunning. 

I've seen loads of posts on Facebook where people are saying the Heather's very vibrant this year. I would agree, this taken on the trails behind the house.

I'm glad to see winter preparations are gathering pace in August. Having said that there is strong evidence of the coming seasons, Tesco have huge stacks of Xmas Sweets and biscuits and the wasps have turned nasty. I hope we get a cracker of a winter this year as it's been pretty useless since the beastie in 2018. Failing that I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a trip to Canada in January...very tightly crossed 🤣

Another very dull day with bits of drizzle, very frustrating harvest weather.Hope the higher pressure forcast for next weekend materialises.Much fresher too at 14c maximum today

.Finally caught up with the 21st century when I replaced my fifteen year old basic mobile phone yesterday with a basic smartphone.Watching Phil Collins on a screen with amazing quality.No wonder people get obsessed with them.

Another grey day though the sun did manage to make a few fleeting appearances in the morning.

Bar a heavy shower in the early evening, dry with light winds.

Big difference in the feel of the day, felt chilly out of the sun and a max of just 13.9c.

Lovely flock of c.20 long-tailed tits descended on the garden in the afternoon, wonderfully noisy and when you get to see them up close, really rather adorably cute.

Write off of a weekend here due to trapped nerve/muscle spasm in my lower back but I did manage a short walk with the dogs this afternoon, primarily to pick up more pain relief. However it was a pleasant afternoon reaching a high of 20c but temperature dropped like a stone late afternoon and patio doors were firmly closed. Suspect I may need to put heating on tomorrow which doesn’t fill me with much cheer, it’s still summer for goodness sake!

Air frost developed in Northern Scotland. The first I think away from mountains. So indeed!
