13.4°C – now we’re sucking diesel

Courtesy NASA Worldview

The first pleasant spring day in what must be well over a week now across the north and northwest of Scotland today. My definition of good is that it remains dry and sunny, with temperatures getting somewhere close to normal for mid May. The sea breeze running down the Cromarty firth must be just keeping things cool enough just to stop convection along the Strath. That can’t be said for temperatures across the rest of the country though 12 UTC temperature anomalies are in the cold range between 3°C to 6°C below the LTA.

    Normal? It’s perishing cold as I write being a mere 9C. But that is not abnormal. Nor was the 17C last week abnormal.
    As far as I am concerned, there is no such thing as “normal” (temperature, sunshine, etc). Those above are within the normal range. But they might differ significantly from the MEDIAN values. (Or as Joe Public seems to prefer, average values).

    Good to meet you last Friday Bruce.
