Another very wet day across western Scotland on Tuesday. That makes three exceptionally wet days in the last week.
- 5-6 December
- 7-8 December
- 9-10 December
October and November had been drier than average in this part of Scotland, but as we know nature abhors not being average, so December seems to be making up for it big time. I would like to have included a hyetograph for the last three months from a rain gauge sited in the western Highlands, but no data for sites like this appear in the SYNOP list apart from Loch Glascarnoch, and even there the rain shadow protects it from the very worst of it. All I can say is thank God for the rain shadow effect!
