Stubborn Moray Firth cloud refuses to budge

Courtesy NOAA

A strange area of low cloud in the inner Moray Firth today refuses to budge today. It’s quite detached from the real haar like low cloud that’s plaguing the east coast of Scotland and England at the moment. The shelter of the Grampians is keeping much of Moray clear of the cloud which persists to the northwest of the Great Glen and on into Sutherland and Caithness. Some of the higher Fannichs (1110 M amsl) are sticking out of it to the west but not so Ben Wyvis (1046 M amsl), so the tops of this inversion must be round the 3,500 feet mark you would think. Who knows it may be being persisted by some kind of low level lee wave effect in the light southeasterly flow.

    The summit of Ben Wyvis was clear today, we popped our heads through the cloud at around 650m on the way up. Glorious above and no wind for a change!
