10/11 November – highest gusts

In western parts the northwesterly has been gale force at times around Elvis II in the last 24 hours, any other day gusts as high as 70 mph would have merited a yellow wind warning. As far as I can see the centre of Elvis II didn’t quite behave itself today as far as the model runs of yesterday predicted it would, and much of our part of the Scotland saw light winds and little in the way of rain in the centre of the low.

Easterly outlook

The weather in the next ten days looks set to remain cyclonic and very unsettled, with easterly winds across northern parts according to the latest run of the ECMWF model.
