    I'm a little concerned about the flooding potential around here - the burn on the South Inch was level with the top yesterday and appeared to be stagnant, so something must be blocking it.  I hope the Council have sorted it out today, as otherwise we'll get what we had in August when the water flooded the Edinburgh Road, Marshall Place and several side streets, as well as the whole South Inch pretty much.

    Yeah a good point knew a friends son flooded out there house in the August storm and only just back in 😬

    Ladies and gentlemen you are not going to believe it. After a wait of almost 3 years... 😮  

    I don't suppose I have anything to complain about this winter...      .      

    I've waited years to get a picture of the house covered with snow.  Finally!

    That's the heavy rain on. Amused to see Biggar get a namecheck on the BBC Breakfast Carol weather. 5.9C.

    Any suggestions for sites to track rainfall totals since SEPA is still down?

    WWW.WUNDERGROUND.COM

    Weather Underground provides local & long-range weather forecasts, weather reports, maps & tropical weather conditions for locations worldwide.

    you could use sites like Weather Underground or you can use Radar Estimates on Netweather radar. The Weather Underground site is a large colony of Person weather stations therefore the accuracy is highly variable.

    My station shows a 42mph gust in the last hour here in Morningside. But I'd venture to say some of those gusts were 50+. My station isn't ideally located for wind detection.

    Mine is the opposite, too high up and miles away from the town. It had max gusts at 54mph but I doubt they reached 50 in Motherwell. We must have one of the worst areas for weather station coverage, i'm not sure why they use drumalbin when it's not even the nearest station.

    So far we've escaped the worst of the rain and even had a bit of sun peek through earlier! That wind though 😳

    Some really high sustained gusts of wind this afternoon. Even the old beech hedge is being bent over by the wind.

     

    Cows came in from neeps in single file no jostling just wanted out of the wind into shelter. Not too cold at 11c.

    I like the idea of altruistic cows, but it kind of begs the question they should be asking each other... what's this all for?

    Day 10. Intermittent heavy rain and blustery wind.  Got another delivery of painkiller this morning. I get to go out tomorrow - to see a doctor. Upside is I might get to hobble to a nice café afterwards. Oh hang on...

    The trees at the back are heaving about like a gang of fat lassies at a disco but there's been a lot less rain than anticipated.

    Temperature 11.1deg.C down from a maximum of 11.6deg.Cat 14:41 and up from a minimum of 6.2deg.C at 06:59, humidity is 87%, wind 5 to 10mph south-southwesterly with a maximum gust of 29mph at 12:28, (it'll be higher but my back garden is well sheltered from the wind,) pressure is 1004.2hPa rising slowly, there's been 5.8mm of rain recorded today and cloud cover is 8/8.

    Quite gusty here just now with spits and spots in the wind. Bridge closed to high siders but otherwise ok so nothing over 60 mph here yet. Was quite wet overnight but since morning just showers rather than steady rain. 10.2C currently from a max of 10.8C and a min of 4.5C this morning. I expect some flooding reports up in Perthshire by morning. Here are the upper falls of Moness this afternoon on facebook. This was all frozen a week ago.

    Grey and gloomy with gusty winds.

    Not a day to remember, though not really worthy of the yellow wind warning that was issued.

    Thankfully not much in the way of rain.  Max of 9.2c.

    Edit - wait, just read, liberation day is official!  From 15th March (or 5th April...) kids can test others on the intricacies of Algebra and the socio-economic consequences of devolution  🎉🎆  Now that has made the day memorable.

    After feeling thoroughly spring like yesterday, a pretty foul day today. Less rain than expected but the wind was pretty gusty, particularly early afternoon. A few trees down locally and roof slates flying about.

    Yesterday was miserable. Today seems a bit more useable. Have to be honest and say, in a departure from previous trends, I’m really enjoying the milder conditions where it’s dry. An early spring would be nice.

    Would one be right in thinking that the chance of imminent heavy snowfall is currently somewhat remote? Thought so. This place is about as busy as the EU stand at a Little Englander Convention. Still, nicer day today than yesterday; the ground is even drying up now.

    Temperature 9.4deg.C down from a maximum of 10.3deg.C at 00:12 and up from a minimum of 9.2deg.C at 04:14, humidity is 84%, wind is 3 to 5mph southerly, pressure is 1011.7hPa steady, there's been no rain today and cloud cover is 8/8 but thin enough to allow some brightness.

    Evening all,

    Aside from the glorious week of wintry conditions, February has been dire in terms of weather here with rainfall sitting at around 220% of normal and sunshine just 47% of normal. The monthly  mean temperature now sitting at -0.4c. (All figures Leuchars). Still I would take the three weeks of crap for one memorable snowy spell all over again! 😄

    Certainly looks drier as we head into March. I’ll soon be on haar watch 😉

    After a week of strong southerly winds and little rain ground conditions are rapidly improving.Young Mr Northernlights has been moving on with stone removal and cultivating tracks.  Wonderful frost mould after the cold spell earlier in the month. Mild today at 13c maximum and daffs breaking surface now. Been vaccinating  young female cattle today for B.V.D. Frost can really kick start the drying process but being on the right of the mountains with a southerly wind helps too.Tractors starting to appear in surrounding fields.

    Back in the days when we lived in Texas, for a time we worked out of San Antonio.  Always remember watching a massive stone crushing machine work a field near there, bit like this but on a even grander scale.  Usually the soils there are very stony (bit like the glacial till round here) but what a wonderful looking soil it seemed to produce with the rocks crushed to broad bean size at most.  Speaking to the farmer, he said the machine dug/pulverised the soil down to about 14 inches which I thought was pretty impressive.  I thought it would be a once in a lifetime job but apparently they do it every 25 years or so after deep plowing due to hardpan/caliche issues.  Never seen that kind of machine here, suspect expense and practicality to the fore there.

    Meanwhile, another record breaking temperature for the year here topping out at 11.9c.  Again very gusty winds spoiled the show, making it feel a lot less than that.  Dry and good periods of sunshine.  More of the same please, but with less wind!

    Nice sunset again.

    Waking up to Haar makes me physically ill. Ruins the morning.

    Today was not too bad, few blustery showers, yesterday was horrific, not looking much better tomorrow. Roll on summer, or one more wintery blast.

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.

      High pressure rules, but still chilly out the sun & watch out for a few showers

      High pressure in charge for the rest of the week but the airmass will be chilly, so feeling nippy out of the sun. Not entirely dry either, with scattered showers around the next few days, especially in the west. Read the full update here
