There are still quite a few showers out over the North Sea just to my east, but none of them are actually reaching us here in Edinburgh just yet.
The big issue here is that even with the wind having a predominately easterly component to it, those showers won't reach us if there is any southerly component to that wind direction as we are then sheltered by the Lammermuir Hills to our SE and the hills over the Scottish Borders.
In order to get those showers into here, we need to be getting a straight easterly at the very least, ideally with a slight northerly component to it, so our best wind direction for that would actually be from the ENE.
Sadly, the wind for most of the day has been more from the SE which has stopped those showers from getting to us. However, the wind does now appear to have backed more towards the east so there should be a better chance in the next few hours of these showers coming into here from off the North Sea.
Nevertheless, we did get our first recorded sunshine of the winter today at Edinburgh Gogarbank. That only amounted to 42 minutes of sunshine for the whole of today in the end, but we are in the darkest time of the year now so we can't expect too much on that front at this time of the year.
Unfortunately, today hasn't even been the least bit cold for this time of the year as the temperature has risen to just over 7°C.😡
As at 5pm this afternoon, the temperature here in Edinburgh was around 4°C but there is a lot of cloud around and showers which do reach us during tonight from off the North Sea, are only going to result in our temperatures refusing to drop as per usual.😡
