Wet in northern Scotland – not a bit of it

If you believed the weather radar you would have thought that it was a thoroughly wet afternoon across the north of Scotland – not a bit of it. As far as I can see apart from passing showers reported from Kirkwall and Lerwick at 15 UTC none of the SYNOP stations on the mainland are reporting anything in the way of rain, which appears to be falling from a thickening sheet of altostratus at around 9,000 feet ahead of an approaching warm front and not reaching the ground.
