Today marks the first meteorological day of Summer - a time I'm sure many thought would never come! Though we aren't quite enjoying the tropic weather so many of us desire, Scotland seems to have finally settled into a comfortable medium with more than enough sunshine to keep us content and the occasional rain shower to keep the flora a nice crisp green.
With the celebration of out 40th Anniversary yesterday, we've been hoping for a few days of proper sunshine to help celebrate in style, though it would seem the weather has different plans!
Today: Things looking to be a bit dull with overcast throughout the day and some heavy rain in the evening
Monday: Rain will continue to fall until late afternoon with things drying up in the evening.
Tuesday: Today looks to be dry for the best part of the day with some light shower and sunny intervals late afternoon
Wednesday: Rain showers will dominate the day with occasional bursts of sunshine in the afternoon.
Thursday: After a dry and bright morning, some showers are due in the later part of the evening
Friday: Light rain showers and periodic sunshine throughout.
Saturday: Things look to be mainly unchanged for the end of the week, though temperatures climb back up past 20°C mid afternoon.
