    Welcome to the forum.

    The system which is giving you chances of rain will be drifting eastward and colliding with that hurricane. See post #1888.

    The hurricane came through yesterday. It was well west of where I live, but we got the wind instead of the rain. We just got power back an hour ago (out for 23 hours). Lots of trees down in different locations.

    Another two-day heatwave due for the weekend - better use that time to strim my way through some more of the backyard jungle before the inevitable rain next week.

    In Australia - 160k north of Sydney - it's a beautiful frost this morning. This usually means pleasant and sunny days (with ducted air-conditioning on standby, just in case!!). Spouse and myself love the cold weather and dread the return of hot weather. Our home is north facing and the sun floods in through large windows during winter, often saving on energy costs.

    Sounds great! It rained heavily here today which I like but I had to get the sheep/goats inside by myself. I was soaked to the bone, luckily it was also hot as heck.

    My apologies here is Scotland and inside is the “barn”. I’m not a farmer I don’t have the skills but we keep some livestock. It’s great for the kids.

    Would it not be warmer there are the moment, insofar as Scotland becomes 'warm'? I had always wanted to visit your wonderful country but I'm afraid travelling days are well behind me now - and there's Covid 19, as a sobering corrective to travel fantasies!!

    "Warm" here in Australia is constantly 35 degrees, up to and including 45 degrees. That's when I wish I was dead!!!

    Warm here is anything above 15 degrees Celsius my friend. Yes I feel at this point travel restrictions are a bit pointless but to stay on topic. I do hope you make it Scotland and the United Kingdom is a beautiful country. I’ve spent most my life in Europe but we decided to move back here to be closer to my Mother. It does rain a heck of a lot but I really enjoy it actually.

    You’re not too far from England either which is slightly warmer for the most part. Plenty of historical sites to visit and some of the best country side in the world in my opinion. If you ever do get out to Scotland I’ll get the first round in.

    Our days here at present are circa 15 degrees Celsius, which is fine by me. This morning we had 2 degrees but this wasn't a problem as one can always get warm but it's not so easy to cool down. We have lots of thermals (which we purchased to travel to Norway 5 years ago and when we lived in Vienna in 2011) in case the air-conditioning becomes too expensive. It runs at a comfortable 22.5 when operating. (I have an App on my Android that I can use to turn it on when we are out and it becomes cold.)

    I was in London for a couple of months in 1971 and that's it. Nothing in the UK since then.

    The weather will warm up here very suddenly; usually about mid-late September and then you wouldn't want to be here in our summers. Once upon a time we had Spring (doesn't that sound like the opening line to a Rodgers & Hart song??) but now we go straight from Winter to Summer.

    But, nevertheless.......

    Here in the US the Rossby waves slowly transition us into summer conditions from winter conditions. Your Rossby waves are far to the south so your Spring is much shorter than ours.

    In Holland the biggest selling item at the moment is the 'above ground swimming pool'



    Because of corona the public swimming pools & beaches have limited access. Now (with a 33+ Celsius heatwave for at least a week) almost each family with children have a pool containing 6000-8000 liter water in the backyard, which is really quite an investment of tap water. But as long as the children are happy, nobody seems to care environmentally.

    How is it with the swimming pool buying hype in your country?

    For those who like to see impressive thunder and lightning from a different perspective

    1) Excellent German quality Donnerwetter (a pity the sounds are missing)

    2) A Dutch weather radar.

    3) A weather radar that shows the vertical buildup of thunder clouds.

    I don't know whether these weather programs function globally or only in Holland/Europe

    Last Tuesday night was weird. Sheet and forked lightning which looked dramatic (well, for UK standards...) but no thunder and only a little rain. The thunder and the deluge came the night after but within a few hours the ground was almost completely dry again. Although not as unbearable as it was earlier in the week it's still quite clammy here - I loathe humidity with a passion.

    You were lucky EG - overnight Wednesday into Thursday on the eastern side of Scotland we had 6 weeks rainfall in a few hours to accompany the lightning. One thunderclap, which must have been right above us, sounded and felt as if armageddon had arrived.
    Sadly that weather moved north and in the early hours of Thursday morning created a landslide that has contributed to a fatal train derailment not far from Stonehaven.
