    Pitch perfect summer's day and the warmest here for the year so far.

    Wall to wall sunshine, max of 22c and a cooling (and strong!) SE breeze during the middle of the day.

    That breeze managed to blow over the parasol and the other half never noticed in their slumber.

    Roll on an hour of peely-wally scottish skin exposure to the midday sunshine and the lobster look was impressive 🦞.  Just as well there was calamine lotion left in the house. 

    Wind is now light and still 16c.

    Looking a wee bit further ahead…risk of some thundery rain/torrential downpours through Wednesday evening/overnight into Thursday.
    All subject to change at this timeframe! @Kirkcaldy Weather are you seeing anything regarding this?

    21:00

    Back in the office tomorrow - low 20’s and plenty of sunshine forecast! Only plus for me…it’s still warm in the evening and hopefully sunny! 😁

    If you are not working tomorrow - enjoy! 😎☀️

    All the best!

    Will see what's showing once its on the higher resolution wrfs but at the min looks like a lack of CAPE and it looks different to the usual plumes with the forecast movement of the low more of a SE > NW movement west of UK whereas we would normally get more SW > NE and through the UK

    The cloud has been more reluctant to break today but hints of brightness are just starting now. Currently cloudy with the sun trying to poke through at 11C.

    Another gloriously sunny day.  Fog again first thing, this being reluctant to clear and only dissipating at 9am.

    The SE wind is even stronger than yesterday, now very gusty and having a marked effect on the temperature - currently 17c, whereas yesterday we were hovering around 22c at this time.

    In the sun though very nice indeed. 🌞

    Wind doing the opposite here keeping sea  fog away and pushing the temperature to 23c just now

    Hoed veg patch this morning and weeds shrivelled in an hour. Will  really help to dry the still wet fields.

    Cattle just loving it too lying flat out in the sun.

    Well summer is definitely here, blue skys for the last few days and quite warm in the sun now. The sunsets have been beautiful recently, photos courtesy of a family member last night. 

    Enjoy the weather

    We are going up there in July via Glen Affrick and Skye. Tell them to keep this weather going into July for a change. Last time were in the Outer Hebridies in July there was a strong to gale force Northerly/NWesterly that lasted a week bringing rain and showers with temps if around 10C.

    Is that possibly Hushinish or Uig in the beach pic?

    The last few days have been fantastic with some seasonal weather at long last. May is normally one of the best months of the year for weather but this month was more like October with pretty cool, damp, dull and unsettled weather. Hopefully this summer is more like 2018, 2013 or 2006 and it’d be nice to have some decent weather for the football.

    I’ve totally lucked out with the weather. It’s been amazing with temperatures in the 18-21c range and plentiful sunshine. The beach was Eoropie near Butt of Lewis.

    Not the clear blue skies of yesterday. Quite a lot of cloud around might break up?
