The one thing I will remember about our first year back in Scotland and the weather here in Ross-shire is just how rare and short lived any dry settled spell have been. This trend seems to be continuing into autumn 2019. Take a look at the number of wet days (>1.0 mm) there have been so far this autumn across the Islands of the North Atlantic and you will see that at Glascarnoch 29 of the last 40 days can be classified as being wet. Unfortunately I don’t have the rainfall statistics to see what an ‘average’ autumn looks like to compare these values against a long-term average. It seems to me that it’s a long time since the weather has been anything other than in a mobile and progressive state of mind.
