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

@Sanserit that is my favourite film for winter. Apart from December when I go all Charles Dickens.

Agree love The Day After Tomorrow yes it may be far fetched with some things but with the extreme weather events around the world (hot + cold) each year you never know when a BFTE will appear I mean I still can't get over those thunderstorms in August if that's possible then more events like November / December 2010 etc are too 😏

Chilly one this morning. About 1c with a slight frost. Lovely morning and should be a decent day before it all turns to 💩 over the weekend!

What a lovely day yesterday was. Started bright and chilly, stayed bright all day even with some cumulus bubbling up in the middle of the day and ended cloudless again, although it also remained chilly. This morning is on a repeat loop; cloudless and therefore sunny but with a definite chill in the air.

Temperature currently 0.8 deg.C with an overnight minimum of -0.3 at 05:32, r.h. is 97%, there's no wind, pressure at 1000.2 hPa rising, and there's been no rain in the last twenty-four hours.

Fourth air frost at -1.7C.

At 9am GFS 00z said 6C, the garden said -0.6C. Wish I had seen this coming so I could've covered some of the plants I am wanting to over-winter.....

No frost here a bit further North due to cloud and a breeze overnight. Min of 7C. The clouds broke up first thing though and it became a glorious sunny morning. Now 12.5C with just a few wisps of fair weather clouds. I suppose that we should make the most of it.

It's been such a nice day that I took my oxygen bottle for a walk around the village, quickly deciding that my two jacket strategy might have been poorly advised. Thoroughly enjoyed it though.

Temperature currently 14.8 deg.C down from a maximum of 15.2 deg.C at 15:26, r.h. is 57%, there's little or no wind, pressure rising slowly at 1003.8 hPa, no rain and the only clouds visible are on all horizons. Another day of consistently bright sunshine.

@Ravelin it would appear that we are in for a rather large amount of rain over the coming few days. I have no need to leave the comfort of my house until Monday so indoors it will be. Beer, curry and football will keep me occupied.

Red sky at night, shepherd's full of nonsense:

Was thinking the exact same thing this evening when out for a walk!!

Lovely day, plenty of sunshine, light winds and a max of 13c.  Nearby burn is running high today, going to keep a watchful eye on it tomorrow - house should be okay but if the burn floods, it cuts off the access road.

Took the dogs out for a decent walk at lunchtime and was very pleasantly surprised by how warm it was in the sun, given the day we had yesterday and what's to come over the weekend. Plenty of others in our SACTDO NE team obviously felt the same way as lots of miles travelled today for our fundraising cause!

From a low of 7.6c at 7am, we hit the heady heights of 15.5c at 2pm and the ground underfoot was much better than I expected.  However, the river was running fast and much higher that it's been all summer but it didn't stop these hardy souls.

By the way, I think I've fixed the problem I mentioned the other day with my rain collector...pine needles were blocking it. Hopefully, it'll work properly tomorrow.

A bit hard to judge with the scale but that looks like some areas of 60+ mm over the next 36hours and add some more on for +72 hours 🥴🚣‍♂️ 739FD5CC-6D6B-4F3E-8590-E8751C03F118.thumb.png.1dfd6d151c857b85f4250581def2d690.png939AB2E4-B47C-410A-8EE2-BD525F0B1632.thumb.png.0782b5b7d197fef04a12cb24ac8f88cb.png

Ugh, my roof leak still hasn’t been properly sorted since the August storm. Really not looking forward to this ☹️

It's duller this morning with 7/8 cloud cover, thickest to the east, but it's still dry so far.

Temperature currently 5.6 deg.C up from an overnight low of 4.5 deg.C at 03:17, r.h. is 97%, there's no wind, pressure is 1000.1 hPa falling slowly, and there's been no rain in the last twenty-four hours.

Well it started raining here about 8am and we've had nearly 5mm so far. The total for the whole of Sept was 39mm, I wonder how close to that we will get by the end of Sunday? Or could we beat it?

The dogs are refusing to go out in this so I’m not going to push it until late afternoon. I’ve already been out for a hair appointment and it’s miserable, we’ve seen 14mm of rain since 7.20am and this isn’t even the heavy stuff that’s on it’s way.

Wellies have been dug out because I’m determined I’m going to clock up at least two miles for this challenge today whether the pampered pooches like it or not 😶

Spare a thought for Northern Italy, they've been hammered by some extremely heavy rain with one station reporting 532mm from one rainfall event. Not sure if that was 24 or 48 hours but still...

Steady rain this morning and feeling cool at 9.0C. Nothing too heavy but steady and likely to last for some time which I suppose is why there is san amber warning.

Wife and I are just back from a full Gortex clad hour long walk with the dog and it was a predictably soggy experience. Temp currently 7C according to the guy up the roads weather station but I am surprised as it didn't feel that cold. 

Now up to 19.5mm of rain since 8am,and as you say we're not even in the Amber warning time period yet.
