Greetings folks.

My first post here. I've been a subscriber to the Netweather Radar for a while now, and popped into the forum occasionally but thought it was time I finally joined. So hi. 👋

 

Not very sunny in sunny East Lothian this morning. Dreich and damp in fact, with some heavy bands of rain earlier. Looks like we might get a wee break later though.

Welcome from me too, another relative newbie on here

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

Welcome, from yet another new member here.

Steady improvement in the weather today, much as forecast, temperature got up to 11.7deg.C at 12:45 but now back down to 9.7deg.C, r.h. is 82%, wind still very light but swung round the the northeast, pressure is 1014.5hPa steady, there's now been 5.2mm of rain today and the cloud has rolled back to 1/8 cover so it's nice and sunny.

Pouring down most of the day. When it wasn't it was heavy drizzle or smirry rain. Walk in the woods with Finn:

It was a long day trip from Edinburgh but well worth it with some scenic rainy misty weather.

@shuggee are those magic shrooms??

Not this time! Think the frost might have seen off the fly agaric? Too high for the other type. (Altitude, I meant altitude).

Wet am followed by a  dry  bright afternoon not to cold at 12c maximum. Was reminded tonight of the best aurora I had ever seen on the 9th October 2004 . Stood with Aurora Storm watching it unfold .We had three distinct arcs covering the whole sky one green /yellow to the south and a similar one to the north and the really fabulous red one right overhead which if you looked directly above had spirals that you could look into that seemed to spiral to infinity. A truly memorable night first and only time I have seen  an arc to the south. No chance tonight as there is steady rain and perhaps not this October as the sun is still fairly sleepy. The only previous red aurora I had seen was in November 1985 as we left the house one night going out for a meal.

Dreich. That's all. Just dreich.

Temperature now is 6.8deg.C up from a minimum of 1.5deg.C at 03:00, r.h. is 97%, wind between 1 and 6mph from the north, pressure is 1016.4hPa rising, and there's complete cloud cover that has dropped 0.2mm of rain on me since midnight and 2.6mm in the last 24 hours.

I originally posted this in the SE England thread for some reason. Age doesn't come alone...

I have a picture on an old computer somewhere of snow on Gullane beach right up to the tide line! Not a common occurrence in sunny East Lothian, I can tell you! I can't get it just now so I hope this satellite image will do.

These were taken in January 2010 of the River Garry just above the River Tummel.

Yes it was very special,only the winters of the early sixties reminded me of it when I was a child and I honestly thought I would never see such a snowy spell again with day time maxes of -7c in my lifetime but there was another spell in 2018 February again with lake effect snow off the North Sea.Twice in ten years with global warming as well.But extremes of weather seem to be part of this and may become normal.I witnessed thunder snow over the Cairngorms in December 2010  at night on the farm road in a temperature of -8c.  We had about 24 inches in old money but with hardly any wind there was no drifting but various new sheds in the area collapsed as no account of snow loading was built into them after the eighties. Our sheds from the eighteen hundreds ,sixties and seventies all survived because of over engineering.   IMG_0001_43.thumb.jpg.49c3c2141dd80c00e6d555282feb3568.jpgIMG_1098_1.thumb.jpg.bbd8fcc7598718b3fa618f6b02af0b49.jpgIMG_1121.thumb.jpg.e4a51de0df601495b8710a598f46a7b7.jpg
