The Scottish Sun

The wet weather north of the border is set to run into Wednesday, and with that temperatures will continue to plunge following the weekend’s warm spell. It will be a wet rush hour on Tuesday morning but a fresh start for much of the country, with highs of 13C in Plymouth and 12C in Hull. By mid morning there will be heavy rainfall across the UK, but parts of Eastern England will stay fairly humid and enjoy temperatures of around 22 or 23C. UK weather forecast: Forecasts show that thunderstorms are on the way The forecast for Tuesday afternoon South West England and parts of Wales will see thunderstorms by late afternoon and Kent could see storms around rush hour. There will be some sun in the Midlands and Manchester but for most of the North, Northern Ireland and Scotland it’s wet weather all around. Aidan McGivern from the Met office said: “A blanket of thick cloud and persistent rain are starting to come down as we end Tuesday. It’s horrible conditions out there.” Most of the UK will see heavy showers UK weather forecast: Blackpool was hit by downpours last week People enjoying the sun in Stratford, East London on Sunday Beachgoers in Lyme Regis in Dorset Much of England and Wales will begin to dry up into Wednesday morning, but the rest of the UK can expect heavy showers and strong breeze.

Coming off cyclocross, I took a week of rest and found myself back on the mountain bike.  With no snow, and minimal ice, the trails were still open and there was no reason not to get out there.  At the time I was digging around the USA Cycling website for MTB Nationals, I stumbled upon […]

Down by the Dougie

The last day of my holiday in Borrowdale, and I still hadn’t been up on the high fells. It was raining when I woke up and the weather forecast suggested that it would continue for a while before clearing late morning, so I decided I’d have to venture out, and after a hearty breakfast, that’s […]

Tonight is looking clear and quiet, except for some spotty showers in the west. Overnight lows will dip to either side of 50 across the region. Skies will be mostly to partly sunny tomorrow with a southeasterly breeze. Highs will be in the mid to upper 70s in the east with the low to middle 80s in central and west KELOLAND. Temperatures will be similar on Thursday, in the mid 70s to lower 80s. It should be another dry day, with the exception of some early morning rain in the northeast. The atmosphere gets quite active starting on Friday. Highs will be in the 60s to mid 70s, but with a front moving up from the south we’ll have the potential for thunderstorms Friday afternoon and night. The potential exists for strong to severe thunderstorms, mainly in south central and southeastern KELOLAND – including cities like Winner, Chamberlain, Mitchell, Sioux Falls, Yankton, Worthington, and Spencer.  The weekend looks very unsettled. Rain and thunderstorms are expected across KELOLAND on Saturday, and we may see rains exceeding two inches in eastern KELOLAND through Sunday. Due to the thick cloud cover we will also see cooler temperatures, with highs in the low to mid 70s East River, and the mid 60s West River. We expect rains to continue in the form of scattered showers on Sunday. It will be even cooler, with highs in the 50s to 60s. Monday should be mostly dry, but then another system of rain and cool air comes in Monday night and Tuesday, with below-normal temperatures in the 50s to mid 60s by midweek.

The 3,000 ft mountain rises steeply from the A5, offering climbing of all levels, and grade 1 scrambling is plentiful. But it is also one of the most hazardous mountains in […]
