We have just about had enough rain here to keep things growing although the garden plants and grass could do with a bit more and that’s not happening in the coming days. Generally though it is looking warm, dry and mostly sunny for the coming week so no complaints.



'Moderate scarcity' shown  on the linked map for much of the east of Scotland doesn't even begin to describe what we are experiencing down here; and the significantly higher temps have completed the disaster.

Nor did I suggest otherwise, just that you can't pinch our water.

For me, the worst aspect of this summer has been the lack of sunshine! Even if it's only 16 C at this time of year the sun feels strong and it's comfortable.
We've had day after day of gloom with the cloud level down to 300m and max temperatures around 16 to 19 C which is about normal for here I hear you say. Unless we share in this next heatwave I think summer 2022 will go down as 'around average' in Cumbria, possibly slightly duller.
I'm banking on this next High to build further north and give us an easterly flow.

According to that report, the water scarcity status in parts of Fife (which is only on the other side of the Firth of Forth from where I am here in Edinburgh) has now been upgraded from moderate scarcity to significant scarcity which is actually as high as you can go on that scale.


This is quite a good indicator of how the overall situation with that is continuing to deteriorate and now, it is only really the NW of Scotland which is still at normal status according to that report.


The NW of Scotland has at least had the benefit of frequent Atlantic weather systems brushing up against there but for the rest of us, we really could do with getting some rain.

If that happens, it would stop the frequent incursions of Atlantic weather systems into NW Scotland which could actually end up getting some of the best weather as a result.


At the same time, it might also raise possible hopes that the south of England in particular, might see some thundery stuff moving up from the continent.
