Here is the weather for Friday.
Temperature: A high of 11°C and a low of 0°C (overnight feels like -4).
A cloudy day with Light and Heavy rain most of the day. Plus high wind gusts of 52 mph, not lower than 42 mph and closing at 45 mph at midnight. Respite from the rain after lunch for an hour and at surprise times in the morning.Wind Gusts this morning start at 48 mph peak at 52 mph at 7:55 am, and drop to 44 mph by lunchtime. Light and heavy rain until after lunch. Then Cloud.
In the afternoon this morning’s heavy rain is followed by Light Rain until just before tea. There are also wind gusts that start at 43 mph then drop to 41 mph by mid-afternoon and increase to 45 mph by tea-time.
In the evening heavy rain from before and after tea. Then light rain for the remainder of the night apart from just before midnight when the heavy rain returns. The wind gusts keep blowing. It peaks at 49 mph mid-evening drops to 46 mph and then peaks at 51 mph at midnight.
Risks: Gusts over 30 mph will make it difficult for pedestrians to walk. Gusts of over 40 mph make driving a challenge, especially for high sided vehicles. Continuous light and heavy rainfall contribute to severe flooding on the roads. Local authorities seem reluctant to resolve. The floods are easily found, everyone knows where they are apart from those that look after the roads! So here is the list again. Inverkeithing near the roundabouts and near Inverkeithing High School. Dalgety Bay near roundabouts at Aldi’s and Tesco. On route to Aberdour and Kirkcaldy.
When driving this evening and in the early hours of Saturday morning keep a watchful eye for ice under bridges and on rural roads near bends. Because of the continual wind gusts, there could be fallen trees or parts of trees blocking your planned route.
Heavy wintry showers – snow in high places and a risk of some snow on lower ground.
Wind: South Westerly until mid-evening then West South Westerly until midnight and overnight.
Speed: 30-28-(25)-24-(26)-24-(27) mph
Gusts: 49-52-(45)-40-(46)-45-(51) mph
That is it from me and have a fantastic fun-filled Friday. Birds are quiet, they were busy yesterday in flight all over the place. It may be a little while before they waken.
