Had a  bit of everything this morning, ground is still wet but the sky is clearing in the north and still horrible to the south. Which of my clocks are right?

Nipped into Kinross this afternoon / evening and could be forgiven for thinking I'd climbed a hill in Norway! 😮  

When I was in primary school many decades ago I did a project about Canada and one of the many places I fell in love with was Lake Louise, it's gorgeous any time but even more so when it's completely

Hi folks, it's been a while since I've dropped in! I was away again finishing my Master's this time in Innsbruck, and while I'm not quite done yet I'm back living in Scotland. Fairly interesting

It stayed dry this morning until just as we got back from an early lunch at 1pm, although a cold wind encouraged a brisk walking pace, but once the light rain started it kept going for most of the afternoon.

Maximum temperature was 9.5deg.C at 12:02, maximum wind speed was 22mph at 14:43, 11mm of rain fell since midnight and 8/8 cloud cover remained in place all day.

Very wet overnight but today basically a repeat of the last few days - sunny start, cloud building in the late morning, leading to overcast conditions in the afternoon.

Light winds, max of 10c.  Not a bad type of weather for working outside.

For here at least it's actually been a benign autumn so far temperature wise, no evidence of any frost damage yet to any of the half-hardy annuals, so a welcome bonus of colour heading into November!

Looks like the month is going to end just as it started...wet 😶

It's been not too bad on Deeside over the last couple of days, even managed to sit outside for a couple of hours on Monday still a hefty ninja shower popped up from nowhere.

Our walking challenge at work is almost finished but my other one goes on until the end of the year. Pleased with my 60 miles so far, I just hope we get a prolonged dry, cold spell over the next few weeks to let me get my miles up.

Don't worry @Puffy MacCloudthat drizzle will soon turn into torrential rain. I'm planning on walking the dog around 2.45pm - so around then would be about right.

I really do think the charts over the next few weeks are worth keeping an eye on, I’m still going for the higher pressure building across Scandinavia and looking out for the cold air / cold pools to the E / NE. 10 years on from that magic winter we couldn’t could we 🧐😏 ❄️ anim_qzt7.gif
