Dalgety Bay Weather:  As at 8:30 am on Lover’s Leap Day (Ladies can propose marriage to men today) – 29 February 2020

There are a couple of SEPA Flood alerts across Scotland.  Our nearest point being in the central belt that is Kincardine and surrounds.

Here is the weather for Saturday
With a high of 7°C and a low of 2°C feels like -1°C.
Some Cloudy periods, Light Rain, Sunny Intervals and Wind Gusts over 30 mphThis morning light rain, then a cloudy sky followed by sunny interval from mid-morning until lunchtime.

In the afternoon more sunny intervals until mid-afternoon and then light and heavy cloud followed by light rain near the close of play.
The evening sees more light rain followed by heavy rain from about 8:05 pm until midnight (when it may lighten)
Wind: A mixture of Westerly, West South Westerly, (South Westerly), (Southerly), South-South Westerly,  (South Westerly)
Speed: 20-14-19-(18)-22-(17)-14-(19) mph
Gusts: 36-24-31-(29)-31-35-(28)-24-(35) mph
Risks:  Wind Gusts of over 30 mph throughout the day making it difficult for pedestrians to walk. Surprise heavy, light rainfall, showers and sleet throughout the day and into the evening.  Risk of snow on high ground.
Risk of floods at:
Inverkeithing, near and on roundabouts. There can be floods near the high school
Dalgety Bay near the roundabouts at Aldi’s and Tesco
On route to Aberdour and Kirkcaldy on roads near fields that regularly flood
On route to Kincardine (Now would you believe this – on roads near fields that regularly flood)
I don’t understand why the authorities take little action to fix these issues.  There is an obvious pattern and may not take much to fix.
That is it from me and have a super Saturday.  The birds are quiet thinking about all those natural and man-made accidental ponds that they can have a quick dip in.
