    The light rain continued pretty much unabated until 6pm at which point the sun came out. Briefly.

    Temperature now down to 7.7⁰C, humidity at 93%, maximum gust of wind was 13mph southeasterly at 13:09, pressure now up to 1028.2hPa and rising slowly, rainfall total for today is now 4.8mm and cloud cover reduced to 7/8 just before sunset.

    A very wet morning and early afternoon with a clearance to classic Aberdeenshire Permagloom™, with just a touch of blue....

    trtht.thumb.jpg.6bfdb981fe7e4d3bd2bab8abee8ebd39.jpg

    Light winds and again the temperature really noteable.

    Hovering between 14.2c and 15.1c overnight and during the day.

    Then at teatime, bang, the temperature plummeted rapidly (currently 6.1c).

    Well illustrated by the temperature graph from one of the nearby online weather stations...

    A changeable sort of day really, generally a sort of bright overcast but with short spells of sunshine and a few light showers interspersed throughout.

    Temperature high of 14.0⁰C at 14:08 up from the low of 7.0⁰C at 06:49 and now 10.6⁰C, humidity 82%, wind 0 to 12mph westerly, pressure is 1028.5hPa steady, there’s been 0.2mm of rain today and 0.4mm in the last 24 hours, cloud cover has varied between 6/8 and 8/8.

    A wet start early this morning then dryer toward lunchtime then just as i was about to get the lawnmower out the drizzle came in... still not particularly cold but that looks like its about to change in the coming week.

    The forecast sunny day ended up being a mainly cloudy affair with just a few bright periods.

    As for the forecast 1% chance of precipitation - hah, heavy shower of rain for 15mins in the afternoon.

    Time for some re-education of the computer at the Met Office.

    Light winds, max of 12c.

    It's actually getting quite noticeable now how few gales there have been over the last couple of years, another sign of climate change?

    There is even a term for the phenomena - Global Terrestrial Stilling 

    Mind you, not a lover of gales considering the damage they can do to tile roofs (give me slate ones any day).

    Nice sunset again.

    Quite a nice morning, for October, with decent brightness, only a light breeze and just the hint of a chill in the air. All in all, very usable.

    Temperature currently maximum for the day at 13.1⁰C up from a low of 7.9⁰C at 07:03, humidity is 82%, wind 2 to 8mph westerly, pressure is 1028.7hPa falling slowly, there’s been no rainfall in the last 24 hours and cloud cover is 7/8.

    Worth looking North tonight for you folks, As a pretty strong Solar storm could produce some nice Aurora IF sky's are clear 😊

    Not sure I buy the global stilling chat at all. It was less then a decade since some very significant storms came through here, I don’t think we can say we’ve witnessed a discernible change in climate within that time.

    What troubles me about a lot of climate change discourse is how inconsistent it can be. From arguments whether or not specific weather events can be attributed to it, through to the articles in the 2000s about whether our children or grandchildren would see snow again, it’s difficult to take some of this seriously.

    Some very light rain around teatime has produced 0.2mm of rainfall, the temperature is now 10.8⁰C, pressure is down to 1026.1hPa and still falling slowly, wind has dropped to 1mph westerly and the 8/8 cloud cover means no northern lights are visible here.

    Total snoozefest with the weather at the moment (mild and cloudy) but October always was my least favourite weather month in Scotland. Here's the highlight of the natural day from Kilmacolm:

    After another very soggy evening and night, today is a drying out process.

    Mind you, we are rapidly approaching that time of the seasons when the surfaces remain permanently damp going by how slow things are drying up today.

    Permagloom™ once again with a few chinks in the grey showing a lovely light blue beyond.

    Light winds, rather chilly 7.9c; still no sub-zero temperature here this autumn.

    Well the weather might be a bit dull and boring but the landscape is at least starting to look much more autumnal. Trees are starting to turn, as is the bracken etc.

    The Permagloom shield was finally overcome for a few hours in the late afternoon, some nice Cirrus appearing as a result.  Cloud back again, so no Aurora spotting tonight 😞

    It’s been completely overcast again this morning, chilly, breezy and the drizzle has returned. A perfect day to test my new winter jacket. The leaves are turning here now also.

    Temperature high was 13.7⁰C at 13:12 just before the rain started dropping the temp to 11.8⁰C now and up from a low of 11.4⁰C at 06:43, humidity is 88%, wind is 3 to 11mph westerly, pressure is 1024.4hPa steady, there’s been 0.2mm of rain today and cloud cover is a fairly thick 8/8.

    Morning all! Blustery and mild here today but thankfully not as warm as last weekend so at least sleep is possible at night. Currently 13.6c, rain not far away, pressure 1009 and falling. Looks like tomorrow will be a proper sunny, autumnal day, and not before time! ⛅🍁🍂🍃😁

    You'll all remember the idea to try something a bit different with the Scottish thread as a test for the wider site back in the spring...? At the time it was postponed, but @Paulhas been working hard behind the scenes...

    Well, there's a big announcement up shortly doing exactly that - it's guinea pig time!

    Here we go then!

    The Scottish community on Netweather is now officially a guinea pig, testing our new community groups feature. The Scottish discussion thread can now be found here - I've copied over the posts from today already:

    Anyone can join the group and post (just click the join group button). There's a gallery and member map in there, and an explanation about the plan here:
    https://www.netweather.tv/forum/topic/96245-welcome-to-the-new-scottish-group/?do=getNewComment

    I'm going to pin this thread in the regional forum, so hopefully everyone can find the new area. For those outside of Scotland, please feel free to come along and take a look, even get involved and give your feedback, as if all goes to plan, we'll be moving the other local discussions over to the new system soon. 

    Paul
