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

Apparently polar maritime air is no good for the UK... me thinks some folk need to move. 😂😂😂😂

Moving sounds like a good plan...

@CatchMyDrift you normally do very well during the winter months or is my memory failing??

Sometimes I'm not too bad but it's hit and miss. I was planning to move somewhere further north and higher up but life's taken a funny turn. Maybe abroad now but we'll see.

Very warm humid day with lots of itchy corn lice about my favourite insect . Spraying whins  along side fences today as they seem to have germinated very well in the dry soil conditions over summer.

Geese starting to head south. Autumn tree colours now  are just fabulous probably down to basically very dry soils  over the summer and I think are earlier than usual too.Being  so  warm with an autumnal looking countryside did not seem right today. Currently 14c

Quick update now steady rain.Dog has just come in absolutely drenched.

Still a bit to harvest in the area so dryer weather in the coming days will help but lower temperatures will not dry up the grain so well.

Here's a question for you more knowledgeable folks! Is it possible to get a small scale, very localised, foehn type effect from a not very high set of hills?

Reason I ask is I was cycling up in the Pentlands tonight and took a new descent between 2 hills. The wind I felt in that area was noticeably warmer than any other part of my cycle. It was bizarre!

I'm sure I probably imagined it and I'm 100% certain the answer is no - hills not high enough, synoptics not right etc. but thought I'd ask anyway 😀

Grey, cool and wet in the morning then a clearance after lunchtime to a mix of sunshine and cloud.

Temperatures rocketing in the afternoon thanks to the sunshine to a max of 20c.  All in all its actually been a remarkably warm period recently. 

Lawn responding, needing to cut it every week at the moment whereas the rest of the summer and the spring it only needed a fortnightly trim.

Long may the weather remain reasonable so the kids can play outside, the Covid situation is making the coming winter a challenging proposition.

Dull start again but dry and a bit chilly.

Temperature currently 12.2 deg.C up from an overnight minimum of 10.8 deg.C at 00:57, 85% relative humidity, barometer at 1028.9 hPa, very light breeze from the southwest-ish and no rain so far since midnight.

Nothing to see here, move along now.

Swallows still around here too, especially by the Tweed. Walked the old railway into Biggar yesterday with that hound called Finn. 21C and dripping sweat it was that humid. Quite the chat with everyone I passed - phwaorr it's a warm one was the theme.

I think that's every day this week that has brightened up in the afternoon to give some impression of a half decent day. Cloud not quite 8/8 and thinner than this morning. Now 13.5 deg.C with no wind or rain, 80% r.h. and pressure up to 1032.5 hPa.

Well that was a chilly one but at least it stayed dry. Had dropped to 12.8 by time I took dogs for their evening walk at 6pm but it was a pleasant enough evening. Spring bulbs have been delivered so hoping for a dry weekend to get them planted and start lifting some of the summer bedding plants that are past their best.

Cloudy all day here and feeling quite cool. Todays max of 16C was at midnight last night!

Similar here with 16C at 1am and a steady 12-13C all day.

I still loved my evening walk but it was a little dark by the time I got back to the car. The river is the Whiteadder at Ellemford Bridge.
