Scotland /Alba weather discussion 2020

Maybe too early to write it off but so far the max gusts are only around 50mph, the same as they were yesterday.If this is as bad as it gets then the bbc were talking absolute rubbish and will have lost all credibility for me anyway.They're still showing 68mph in 2 to 3 hours...

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

Met Office changed from sleet showers to heavy snow showers from early tomorrow morning for most of the day. Could be a interesting drive to work tomorrow at 3.30pm if this is the be believed...

Where is the storm? It is dead calm and not raining here now here in Invergordon! Is this all hype or do I live in a climate bubble? Probably regret this post later as my roof blows off! TBH I rather suspected this would happen here as we usually miss out on severe weather here due to our sheltered location from Atlantic weather.

The Borders is badly flooded this morning, not sure if it's going to be as bad as a few years ago but the rivers are unusually high. 

Catch,my daughter drove from Gala to Newcastle this morning and it took her 3 hours. She said flooding was bad.

This mornings gloomy start has given way to sunny intervals and 9C. Wind has picked up but nowhere near yesterday's gusts.

Calm before the storm?

47.9mph highest here today, which is stronger than yesterday but yep still sounds relatively calm out there.

Back home in Pittenweem after a night out in Dundee. Was wet, windy and unpleasant but nothing unusual for winter in Scotland! Wind currently 33mph at Leuchars, gusting 46mph. 11c.

I see the Met Office snow warnings have been updated and it still looks like modest elevation (>150m) will be required for a ‘proper’ snowfall:

The height of the snow level will vary throughout the period, but it is likely that any snow accumulations at low levels will only be temporary. 

Wet bulb temps will be key for snow to accumulate.

Just been oot with the dugs and aye, the ground is completely saturated. Overland flow everywhere. Springs have appeared where I've never seen them before.

Road outside - which runs through a wood - is a right state with branches, mud etc. A good few trees down too.

I was out and about around 0830 while it was still raining a bit the wind had died down, now the wind has greatly increased and getting quite gusty, Beeb weather on-line said the central belt could see gusts touching 85mph late in the afternoon/evening...Christ that's blowy..!!!

Well it's 12:40 and i'm calling it now, the bbc were talking rubbish.Unless there's a rapidly forming sting jet nowhere in the central belt is getting 85 mph gusts.The weather has been very much in line with what the met has been predicting for the last few days.Winds peaked maybe slightly up on yesterday in the mid 50s between 10-11am here.A yellow warning was all it was worth, even Brendan had stronger winds at it's peak.

 

I think when looking at forecasts for almost any type of weather but especially wind whichever model goes for the lowest speeds is usually the most accurate.

We had heavy showers in the morning with some strong gusts of 53mph. The showers have eased off a bit now and we've had a bit of sunshine. The wind is starting to really pick up now though I think for me it's meant be at its worst between 12pm and 3pm.
