Good Morning Dalgety Bay

Dalgety Bay Weather: As at 11  am on 28th June 2020

There are 12 SEPA Flood alerts in place across Scotland and this includes the Central Area, but Fife is now excluded.

Here is the weather for Sunday
Temperature:  A high of 14°C and a low of 11°C.
Heavy rain all morning. This morning there have been wind gusts over 30 mph (48.28 km/h), these will cease for a little while and return before lunch.

After lunch, the wind gusts are a little lighter but in the mid-afternoon wind gusts over 30 mph (48.28 km/h) return

Light and heavy rain for most of the afternoon with light showers just before tea time.

During and after tea there is light and heavy cloud until just before midnight when we can expect some light rain (This continues overnight). However,  the wind gusts continue from tea time until midnight on Monday.

Wind:  South Westerly, West South Westerly, (South Westerly), (South Westerly), South-South Westerly, (South Westerly)

Speed:  17-(18)-16-(20)-(19) mph

Gusts:  30-29-33-(31)-27-31-(35)-36-(32) mph

Risks:  Wind gusts over 30 mph (48.28 km/h) make it difficult for pedestrians to walk.  The good news is that there may be some surprise dry periods throughout the day.

The continuous rain adds a risk of flooding in Dalgety Bay at the roundabouts near Aldi and Tesco supermarkets. There may be floods on the way to Aberdour and Kirkcaldy.  Along with flooding on the roads towards Kincardine.  This includes flooding near Inverkeithing High School and the fields and roundabouts near Inverkeithing and the motorway. Additionally, if you are driving through Rosyth there may be flooding there too!  This all sounds like a wild autumn day with a bit of summer heat!

That is it from me and have a superb Sunday.  I am not too clear, what the Social Distancing rules are now.  I have just had a word with the birds they have absolutely no idea.  Their first reaction was what is social distancing!  At that point, I gave up.  They are now singing quietly and are in a happy mood.

I am just off to check the rules. I am back after about a 15-minute diversion on the Scottish Government Website.   In the end, I got some information but the website looked a complete mess. It seems to be broken! Good news… Scottish Government Website fixed at about 10:45 am   The bottom line is that at the moment the rules don’t appear to be simply presented (perhaps it is just too early in the morning and a broken website does not help!).   

But here goes.

  1. If you are part of an extended family (that is two households one of which is either a single person or a single person with a family under 18) you can meet outside off and inside each house.
  2. If you are not in an extended household you can only meet with another two households in one day.  But outside only
  3. One can only travel within a 5-mile radius of your home for leisure and shopping activities but for some family issues one can travel further afield but you still need to meet outside.
  4. This weekend gatherings of crowds are not allowed in Scotland.
  5. Please take care with all others… Especially the vulnerable, over 70s, pregnant, disabled (particularly disabled women are at eleven times higher risk), people of a dark skin ethnicity (4 times higher risk) and those being shielded

Therefore, if you are planning any of the above please check the Scottish Government website for their latest update.

Back to the plot…  Do have a superb Sunday with family and friends, given our weather condition and the rules above that will be by Zoom, Google Video, Facetime, Loom or many of the other online services, or we might simply choose to make a phone call and have an e- party.
