Sunday 30 December

Quite a breezy day, but with good spells of sunshine. We avoided the showers that plagued the north of the country through the daylight hours of today. Just as well, as some of the showers brought 1-inch hailstones. The causative depression, far away beyond the Hebrides, brought those islands a brief spell of galeforce winds this afternoon. In the meantime, my dad and I went for a walk in the woods - specifically the woods - to avoid the worst of the wind. It has turned a lot colder, with a daytime max of just 6C / 43F, as compared to yesterday's 11C. Winter is still a long way off though, and no major changes are forecast.

Glad you are enjoying the nice weather there. Winter has set in here and our temps are well below freezing with lots of snow on the ground.
