Dalgety Bay Weather: Update as at 10:00 am on Monday 10 February 2020
Here is the weather for Monday
SEPA 51 Flood warnings and 15 flood alerts in Scotland – none for Fife
Yellow weather warning of snow for most of Scotland – sleet forecast for today in the Bay. Snow in Dunfermline and further North from about 8:30 am. There may be snow in Edinburgh to the South, Cowdenbeath and Kelty to the North. There has been a flurry of snow between 9:15 am and 10:15 am. That snowfall is being washed away by rain. There are conflicting weather reports some indicate more sleet throughout the day (which may mean more snow) and others indicate rain for most of the day with sunny intervals at lunchtime for an hour or two. That report also indicates cloudy skies from 3:55 am until teatime. After which there are showers until an hour or two before midnight. From a weather reporting viewpoint, it is a nightmare!
With a high of 4°C and a low of 2°C.
Sleet and rain until just before midnight.
Wind mainly South Westerly and Wind Gusts: Over 30 mph increasing to 47 mph by 6:55 pm then returning to 35 mph by midnight.
Risks: Flooding caused by continuous rain and sleet. Take care when driving near roundabouts, especially near Aldi’s, routes towards Aberdour and Kirkcaldy. Not forgetting Inverkeithing and the flooding yesterday on the farmland and near some roundabouts. If you are travelling towards Kincardine there are floods on the road larger than usual.
If travelling West, North and South beware of the snow it will last for most of the day. Once the snow starts a rule of thumb is that you have about two hours to get home.
The wind is above 30 mph which makes it difficult for pedestrians and will peak at 47 mph this evening. The message today is simple ‘take care when you are out and about’.
Risk of hail, and thunder throughout the day.
That is it from me and have a magical Monday. The birds, are very quiet today. Perhaps they are in hiding trying to avoid snowballs!
