Ness Weather

Weatherwatch

The North Lewis weather has been extremely stormy over the past month or so and very wet with it - the ground is absolutely saturated. The temperatures however have been very unseasonable of late, rarely dropping into single figures. According to the forecasters, this will change from tomorrow onwards with the arrival of a cold front. If this means getting some nice, crisp, dry, sunny days, we will happily accept the drop in temperatures. We won't hold our breath, however.

Throughout the summer months, we in the Western Isles gloated about the good weather we were enjoying, while the rest of the British Isles had one of the worst summers on record. Four months without any meaningful rain, we boasted! Well, since September you could just about count the number of dry days on the fingers of one hand and, if the forecasters are to be believed, this week will be more of the same. As well as the rain and hail showers, it is bitterly cold and very, very wintery.

The weather forecast for the weekend looks quite favourable. After a week in which the weather alternated between sunshine and showers, today was absolutely beautiful, with bright sunshine and high temperatures - just perfect for lounging about on any one of the beautiful beaches we are blessed with here in the Ness area. Hopefully August will be another cracking month. Even although we have had a little rain over the past 10 days,  we are being told that there has not been enough to make any appreciable difference to the local reservoirs, which are still quite low as a result of three months of drought.

Well, all good things come to an end! After three rain-free months, yesterday dawned very wet and, worse still, blowing a gale. So, all of a sudden we are having a dose of the bad weather that the rest of the UK has been stuck with all summer. To make matters worse, the weather map appears to have been reversed and the south of England is, for the first time this year, boasting about good weather - it appears that the course of the jet stream has reverted to the normal for this time of year. Oh well, some you win, some you lose but we have definitely been the lucky ones overall. This morning is dry and, although there is a stiff breeze, the wind is considerably down on yesterday and it is forecast that it will continue to drop as the day goes on. The forecast for the next two days is quite good, so holidaymakers, don't despair!

I watched the BBC weather forecast for the coming week, earlier today, and surprise, surprise still no meaningful rain in the offing for Lewis, in general, or Ness, in particular. At this time of year we are usually casting envious eyes at the rest of the UK basking in sunshine while we cower under umbrellas or any other form of shelter we can find, from the never-ending rain. Well, this year the (wellie) boot is on the other foot and it is the time for us to be the envy of the rest of the UK - THREE MONTHS now without any rain worthy oh mention. Have you not got the message yet, holidaymakers? Forget about the normal English and Scottish Mainland holiday destinations and head for the Western Isles and Ness in particular.

Following a few days of overcast weather, with occasional showers of (mainly) light drizzle, the sun has finally returned this afternoon. We are still better off than any other part of the country. While other areas are still experiencing heavy rain and flooding, the soil here is still very dry.

Weatherwatch

Following two days of sea mist, today is very overcast with a slightly chilly breeze. Apart from a couple of light showers during the night, however, the drought continues - that's 2-3 months now without any meaningful rain, while many other parts of the country suffer horrendous flooding. This is the place to be, this summer!
