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 ☀️

    • We'll be conducting updates to our Snow Watch advisory over the next few weeks. We'll post them here once ready and we'd appreciate if you can provide feedback as to how helpful you may find these updates.  Here's a sneak peak at what we'll be adding in the next week... 
    • Hi @Brent, so sorry nobody got back to you sooner.  I guess it would be appropriate to talk about Monday into Tuesday now. Early hours of Tuesday look to be your best chance, as the main rain band passes. Otherwise showers could catch you which maybe wintry. You probably have the best chance than most but showers and even within the main front will be hit and miss.  An easterly air flow would be most peoples best bet.
