After a brief bit of sunshine today, the clouds have rolled in over the Sound of Mull and the rain has started to splatter. Now we await the storm called Abigail.
November so far has brought unusually mild temperatures, but also our first winter gales. Reports from Swordle were of 67mph gusts on 8th November and a 74mph gust at 5am on 9th November. BBC Weather is reporting Abigail to bring us winds of up to 80mph Thursday night.
