Why no sun here?


I live in S W Scotland and while there has been no rain and temperatures of around 20° consistently, for the past two weeks we have had very little sun. The weather prior to this was great and we enjoyed the same heatwave as the rest of the country. When it does make a brief appearance, this is either early morning and is gone by 8.30 or evening from around 6pm for a short time. 

Can anyone explain this, in the context of most of the rest of the UK seemingly having both heat and sun? And is the sun likely to show its face again before the summer is over?

Hello Anne, 

You haven't stated where exactly you are in South West Scotland which doesn't make answering this question easy but around the time you posted, a week either side cloudier conditions were prominent in Western Scotland as precipitation moved in from the Atlantic. High Pressure was established over Britain by that time sending most, if not all cloud and rain coming from Atlantic Low Pressure systems towards Scotland. 

I hope that helps and it has cheered up a little? If not, perhaps a Holiday down South in the next week might be advisable ☀️

    • It's been a while now but here's all the winter forecasts I have read/think are worthy of reading...  Our very own/first ever seasonal forecast https://metcast.net/news/winter-2018-19-forecast/  Gavs Weather Vids https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0cIpgxWRfw The Snow Dreamer aka London and Southeast https://t.co/qw3ZuNf7AT  Are there any that I have missed that you think is a decent read?
    • Does anybody else buy a TV Guide and mark everything they want to watch? I have the TV Guide on my iPhone now but I still like doing it the traditional way. Below is the 2018 cover... 
    • Are you dreaming of a White Christmas or just for the iPhone XS Max? Well, if you're anything like me neither is going to happen 😆  Do you have any traditions (family or otherwise!?) personally I always like to go to the St Peters Brighton Carol Service on Christmas Eve. In fact I like to go to as many events on the lead up to Christmas--I play at some concerts/carol services too.  As for the weather during the Christmas period we'll be looking at that from Saturday (1st December). What are your thoughts/hopes?  
    • Well, model output certainty hasn't been boring for the last few weeks. 12z is currently running and it's snowing the possibility of some snow showers in the east and south east (although I suspect this won't amount to much--famous last words!).  Share your thoughts and opinons on the model output below... 
    • New snow advisory. There will also be an observational map which will be issued for informational purposes only and will be published after any decision making at Metcast/Snow Watch when an advisory is not considered suitable.
