Default Grass Frost Aberfeldy!

Rather surpisingly last nights air and grass mins were 0.3 and -0.4 C
respectively. Sky was mostly clear with a light NWerly but it had me a
bit surprised, I must say.

Excellent news!

Shows we are over the brink and it won't be long now before the nights draw
in and it starts to turn colder once more. Not long to wait till the winter
snows.

Each to their own, I just love winter :-)

A cooler night would have been welcome here as it was a case of having to
lie on top of the duvet with all the windows wide open. Mozzy bitten legs
and feet are the result.

I recorded a grass minimum of 15.3C last night. Not the highest this summer
but very near.

They are already, it's dark by 2130 now instead of not really getting
dark at all. B-)

The Rowan berries are well ripe and leaves starting to yellow, good
crop this year. Hay making has finally got underway and is more or
less complete. The longer grasses are yellowing and the House
Martins/Swallows gathering on the phone lines before departing.

Horribly hot and sticky here too last night with an air min. of only 14.6C.
Rain rate of 7mm/h though around 0400.

I sleep with one sash window wide open all year apart from when it is very
windy. Even in winter I find it more comfortable despite not ever having
heating on in the bedroom. But then I like a cooling breeze!

Never have any problems with insects up here! The odd midge perhaps outside
on the rare occasions the wind drops.

Blimey, that's early.

I wouldn't expect to see the swallows or house martins leave until the end
of September at the earliest, more likely the 1st or 2nd week of October.

There are a few swifts still around, usually they have gone by the middle of
August.

The later part of winter (say mid Jan onwards) can be fun, there's
good chance of snow *and* it's getting lighter in the evenings. On the
other hand I never particularly look forward to the time just after
the clocks go back. Not cold enough for snow in lowland southern
England, too late for summer warmth, and the double whammy of the
clocks going back and an early solar noon. Luckily it's only for a few
weeks though....

A pleasant 8.5C min last night, looks to have leveled off just below
10C for tonight.

A rather hot and uncomfortable 21C in Carlisle today.
