Weather wc 17th October
its hard to beleive that last night there were reports of snow on some of the Aberdeenshire hills especially given the stunning day we had here at eriska yesterday although the cooler conditions due to cl;ear skies at night needed the sunshine to burn the dew off the grass. Anyway it has been a great week just right for laying sports hall floors given the dry days and stable temperatures insuring taht concrete does not dry too fast or too slow. Now all we have to do is hope for still conditions in a weeks time when the steel frame arrives but that may be a step too far- so whats ahead fro this week?
Early fog patches clearing then dry with sunny spells.
Monday: Overnight mist and fog patches, especially around and on the hills, gradually clear to leave a fine and dry day with some long spells of sunshine.
Tuesday: A mainly dry night with clear spells, allowing a widespread ground frost then in comes the cloud and patchy rain
Wednesday: A bright start but generally a rather cloudy day with outbreaks of mostly light rain through the morning and early afternoon. Freshening southwesterly breeze.
Thursday:Sunny spells and occasional showers, turning increasingly wintry over hills as winds turn more northerly and strengthen
Friday:We can expect a mixture of blustery showers and rain with drier and brighter spells.
Saturday: Showers will be heavy at times and wintry over higher hills and mountains it will feel generally cold as winds come from a northerly direction.
