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

So Mrs Mair Snaw has today told me she wants more outside space. So i have agreed to another house move... she then says a home by the coast would be nice... she has been told to get tae f#*k. And quickly agreed to a move inland and said no more than 200m asl.. oh go on then. 😂😂😂

Overnight low of 3.1c so not as cold as further south.

Thereafter a forgettable day.  Generally grey, though the sun taunted you in the late afternoon by trying to break through the cloud.

Max of 11c and dry.

Strong aurora ongoing just now going by the alert I got, but the cloud is masking any view of that unfortunately.

Well that's the Indian summer finished. This morning the weather is dull, damp and disappointing.

Temperature currently 9.2 deg.C up from a minimum of 4.7 deg.C at 01:46, relative humidity is 95%, there's no wind, barometer at 1012.1 falling slowly, there's been 0.4mm or rain on the last 24 hours and the sky is 8/8 cloud covered.

Strangely, although my weather station is recording very little to no wind and the trees behind me are still, the wind turbine on the farm on the other side of the wood is going like the clappers. Either it's very exposed or I'm very sheltered here.

It's remained dull and damp with occasional drizzle producing a total for the day so far of 5.6mm of rain, temperature currently 14.0 deg.C, which is a fraction down on the high for today, the wind has remained light to non-existent and pressure is steady at 1012.9 hPa.

Cool and cloudy here today with a max so far of 12C which is the current temp. Just a hint of rain about lunchtime but didn't last more than a few minutes.

After a damp middle of the morning to about 2 or so this afternoon the skies did break very sunny end to the day. Wonder if we get mist and fog tonight with the dampness of the ground so forth

Typical, I put washing out late morning, went onto a phone meeting then when I turned round it was raining! Not enough to register on my rain gauge but enough to stop my laundry from drying. Hey ho, looks like the drying rack will be used more often from now on. Hopefully tomorrow will be the best day of the week and the sun will make an appearance.

Could be a good show tonight.

Wet morning here today and then a wonderful sunny afternoon/evening - high of 15C.

Crystal clear overhead at the moment but can see those showers on the Coast.

Lovely tomorrow and then a washout Wednesday! 

All the best to you all.

A day of light grey Aberdeenshire Permagloom™ - clearing this evening to crystal clear skies!

Armed with the Aurora Amber alert, dragged the kids out to have a look an hour ago - to discover nought bar two satellites..... kids not impressed.  Just goes to show how quickly the aurora comes and goes.

The late evening clearance allowed some sunshine to appear just before sunset - the low angle of the sun making the clouds look particularly sinister...

Surprisingly mild day, with a max of 16c - coinciding with a few spots of rain around lunchtime (warm front passing over???).  Generally light winds.

An odd thing happened an hour after I posted here at 16:30; the sky cleared and the drizzle stopped. The only cloud visible was some cumulus on the western horizon. In the last couple of hours the cloud has started building again. We're getting some weather at last.

Temperature currently 6.1 deg.C, r.h. at 97%, pressure 1016.8 hPa rising slowly, and no wind registering. Total rain today was 5.6mm.

There's some organised cloud over towards the western horizon but only high, wispy stuff elsewhere allowing for a bright start to the day, although chilly again.

Temperature is currently 5.4 deg.C and the minimum last night was 2.6 deg.C at 04:52, r.h. is 98%, there's no wind, pressure is rising slowly at 1017.9 hPa, and there's been no rain since midnight.

A perfect day to take a walk later with my daughter and get some lunch somewhere locally.

A rather bright morning here. So home teaching today will mostly be spent at the local beach. See if we spot some seals while also learning about them and the surrounding environment. Might as well make the most of what looks like the last real usable day for the next week or so.

I'm gonna pop into the mad House to see when the snaw is arriving 😂😂🤪🤪

I think some folk in parts of the NE/E/SE might need a boat by the end of this weekend to get about.

I blame @CatchMyDrift for posting about a dry September. 😁

UKMO 96,120 and 144:

Mountain Outlook looking very wet and windy.

https://mwis.org.uk

Planning Outlook:

Low pressure and fronts will move in from the Atlantic during midweek, bringing heavy rain to west and south facing mountains on Wednesday. Generally low pressure is then expected to persist across Britain through into the weekend, although conditions will vary from day to day. Some days escaping dry, but expect areas of persistent and heavy rain, mixed with clusters of heavy showers. Close to freezing on highest tops Thursday and Friday, then warmer air is likely to be drawn in from the southeast. Winds also varied, marked lulls, but sometimes widely gale force on the hills.

@Mair Snaw If you want a snow fix head to @Kirkcaldy Weather snow and ice thread - great stuff in there at the moment! Cracking pictures from @carinthian as well in the Austria and Worldwide mountain snow thread. 

Glorious stuff up North last night I see!

Aurora and rare moonbows light up the night: Link below.

With regards to Winter 2020/21 I’m just going to sit back and see what happens! Totally ignoring all long range predictions/outlooks! Local 400 meters hill already marked out as my snow fix spot. Hopefully see more than one centimetre settle at sea level here this Winter. 😂

Last Winter was an absolute stinker - can’t be any worse this year! Can it!? 😃

The Monday is the day I particularly remember as I had to get my daughter to the airport as she was leaving for her ski season job. Surprisingly, none of the flights were delayed. Oh to experience a winter of that calibre again!

@Mair Snaw where can I find this mad house?
