    Dry, cool (13c max) and grey with light winds.

    A bit soul destroying when its still officially summertime.

    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

    Even more soul destroying when I’ve given in and put the heating on. At least it’s been dry for the biggest part of the day, just a short shower that didn’t register on my rain gauge but enough to be seen on the slate of the patio around 11pm.

     If this  jetstream   keeps up then we could be looking at a cooler winter at the end of a solar  minimum.  Neeps are in the same field as they were in autumn  2010  Will we see a repeat of history?  Cool this morning at 12c and mostly dry/dull all day. Fine day for brushing up as we loaded more lorries.

    If we get a repeat of 2010, it will be thanks to your neep field. You'll need to build a shrine in it and we can all come up and take selfies and buy souvenirs.  You could charge money for wee bags of stones to take home. 🤓🤓

    Just had the craziest deluge of rain here in Glasgow, varying degrees of torrential for about 90 minutes. Never seen anything like it here. It’s just stopped completely, out of nowhere. Incredible.

    Wet. 12.5C

    So much for getting the grass cut today! Returned last night from a few days away and was amazed at the new growth.

    Some heavy bursts here but nothing like what the city centre has been getting. Pretty bad downpour there just now with reports of flooding on the M74 and M8.

    This is brutal! Steady easterly murk, occasional lashing rain and the friggin' house lights on before 5pm in August!

    Variable amounts of cloud here today, no rain yet but plenty of wind. Managed to get out and brush my grass (my new brush came today).

    Rain on and off here - nothing as heavy as Glasgow earlier and now Edinburgh.

    Have talked Mrs Snaw into a few days away at the Scandinavian Village in Aviemore. Has anybody been and if so is it any good?

    I will also be laying the seeds for a possible move to the area over the next 12 months. I have a cunning plan 😂😂

    After being up in the chilly breezy mist on Cockburn Law it felt quite mild at Edin's Hall Broch:

    Only good thing to say about today is that it's been dry pretty much the whole day. There was a wee bit of drizzle first thing but soon stopped.  However, son's rugby boots are still trying to dry out after Tuesday's drenching, despite having been outside all day - he said it was like sloshing around in a puddle.

    Aberdeenshire Permagloom™ yet again with a max of 13c, light winds and occasional spots of rain in the wind.

    At this rate will need to start taking Vitamin D tablets to make up for the lack of sunshine.

    August is now the 2nd wettest month here since last August and also the wettest month of 2020:

    Variable cloud amounts. Some sunny spells, a bit windy and can definitely feel a nip in the air. 

    Probably won't last.

    More relentless misery! August is fast becoming the worst month of the year - as @CatchMyDrift pointed out this is now the 2nd washout August in a row! It's beyond depressing!

    Well somehow managed to get in the drier slot yesterday tho the wrf nmm did pick that up, so looks like my monthly total will be finishing on or close to the current 188mm over 3 times the August average crazy stuff! At least some drier weather and chillier nights to come 904E8E80-E1F1-4572-A3D1-B3D34B8F0A88.thumb.png.c571bf29aa5705e965dda12634310177.png Do wonder if this autumn will revert back to the more typical stormy stuff we would expect after the last few years being quite quiet on the storm front, with all the stuff going on with the hurricanes it wouldn’t surprise me plenty of warm SST’s for storm development C08AF570-5D39-4686-AD9F-96E3F11C1434.thumb.png.570988ca745f27335e1369a02c9371fc.png

    I'd need to also look at the rainfall but the temperature stats back up a possible trend. Every month has top ten entries for years between 2010-now except August where the highest entry from recent years is 20+ so perhaps there is a trend?
