Weather Radar

The recent run of disappointing weather has made us even more sensitive to the need for accurate local weather forecasts, particularly when summer is the time when most of the outdoor maintenance jobs are done, such as painting the front terrace wall.

As can be seen, we started the job yesterday morning on the strength of....

....YrNo's hour-by-hour forecast, but it was rapidly brought to an end when a heavy shower passed over.

Had we looked at's radar coverage of the area, we might have seen the band of showers working their way northwards from Mull and waited until they had cleared, after which....

....the sun came out and we had the sort of day that YrNo had forecast. But, sadly, we didn't see a single butterfly on our buddleia, which is now in full flower.
