I have to say I was a little surprised when I was on my way to Glasgow last week to be confronted not only by a snow plough but one whcih was dispensing grit. This was against a backdrop that was cool but still well above freezing and lots of signposts warning us of excessive rain expectations? As I said to my first meeting it was clearly not Argyll and Bute- who would  be saving supplies until theywere needed - but maybe a new member of the roads departmenst in Glasgow who simplywanted to check that any winter polans were both operational and effective-- at least they cn now put them away for a few months as the weather remnaisn autumnal rather than wintery!

So what really is ahead for Eriska over the next seven days- suffice to say that a downfall of leave sis the only real certyainty as teh sweeping raking and smouldering takes a large chunk of the estate teams current efforts-- and its ony goiing to grow over the next fortnight.

Today:After a dry start although it seems cloudy there will be sunny periods and a few showers possibly on higher ground


Monday:Mainly dry and brighter with sunny spells and a few showers. The showers mainly over high ground again and hopefully ore inland.

Tuesday: Dry with clear skies and a touch of frost to start but then the clouds will push in bringing more opportunity for showers

Wednesday:After a chilly start a dry day to come with plenty of sunshine and light winds. Clouding over with rain later

Thursday: Cloudy with rain clearing from the northeast but rremaining quite windy

Friday: A broad band of rain extending north through the day. Wet and windy on the cards.

Saturday:It should seem much warmer , although this will be due to the drop in wind and less rain as it will still remain autumnal through the weekend
