Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020


Recommended Posts

What a difference a week makes!

However, it was a real pleasure to see so many different species of bird at my newest feeder this morning including chaffinches, blue tits, spurdies and either a green or gold finch which I’ve never seen in my garden before. Although that may just be because I’ve been away at work rather than working from home and have just missed them. Dogs were also fascinated...patio doors is there own personal tv screen 😂

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

Winter arrived today in terms of wind chill, absolutely baltic feeling in the strong NE wind which has been here all day.

Max of 9.5c so the first single digit max of the autumn.

Some good sunny periods though so actually felt pleasant enough out of the wind - in the greenhouse lovely and warm at 22c!

Another nice sunset this evening, see there is also a outside chance of some aurora as well - up in Shetland its spectacular looking at the Eshaness Lighthouse - https://www.shetlandwebcams.com/eshaness-lighthouse/

Yet another cracking morning. This is unbelievable. Wall to wall sunshine and not a cloud to be seen. Another great day to get out and about.

Temperature 2.4 deg.C with a minimum overnight of -0.6 deg.C at 06:12, 94% relative humidity, no wind, pressure at 1019.0 hPa, and no rain in the last 24 hours.

Wintry sunrise this morning with some cumulus clouds coming in off the Firth from the NE on a fresh wind. Very cool feeling.

Sudden change in weather means partial winter feeding has started for cattle outside as grass at these temperatures has very little mineral content.This was demonstrated by a newly calved cow with "staggers" yesterday morning necessitating visit by vet and iv magesium and calcium. From a collapsed state to sitting up in 30 minutes but we were lucky as we could easily have lost her.Calf is fine and both are now inside for two days. Lots of molassed(sugar) mineral buckets in field but she may have not taken enough as she was calving .

I'm sorry that the weather gods aren't smiling on you but at least you had a good breakfast. I'm on my fourth large mug of tea that still hasn't touched the sides of my hangover; the idea of food is not appealing.

Mostly sunny here this morning but clouding over now in the light Northerly breeze.  First visible ground frost here today though the air temp didn't get below 2C. Now up to 10.3C. 
edit. Wind no longer light and it is quite gusty making it feel cold with pretty much complete cloud cover now.

Grey and more grey today infact I'm sure somebody wrote a book about different grey shades. Im sure I've seen all of them today.

The strong wind has slowly died down so that's at least something.

Following a dawn to dusk cracker of a day yesterday, this morning is again dry, sunny and crisp.

Temperature currently -0.7 deg.C up from a minimum of -1.4 deg.C at 06:41, relative humidity is 95%, there's no wind, pressure is 1020.3 hPa and steady, and there's been no rain in the last 24 hours.

There's a definite frost on the ground this morning so I think I'll advance my usual 1st of October date for putting out the bird feeders.

Lovely sunny morning blue skies and 1C, birds water was frozen. Fed birds, we've got a mob of wee sparrows living in the hedge and they sit on the fence and look into the kitchen until somebody feeds them.

Definitely picked the wrong year to start growing stuff....

Last frost - May 14th - which is a couple of weeks later than anytime in the previous 12 years

June, July and August all less sun than normal

And now a first frost 3-4 weeks earlier than normal

🤬

Max of 11C exactly today and min of 0.9C so quite cool overall. In the sun and with a lighter breeze it didn't feel too bad and I had a walk this afternoon in shorts and a t shirt though I had to pretend a bit to my wife that I wasn't really feeling cold. Looks like another coldish one tonight with temp currently 8.4C.
