It's a shame about the weather Mull but I hope it didn't spoil your holiday too much after your long journey to get there.

I took my dog for a walk on "Dog Mountain" this morning and it was warm and dry with no wind and was quite pleasant, not exactly a mini heatwave but still very nice.

How different to the atrocious rainfall that they have had up there in Scotland, I hope that Mull and Helig were not affected by the rainfall and the floods that followe

Never seen anything like it before.
Heavy rain non stop for over 2 days. Oban MRT called out on Saturday to assist Police Scotland deal with volume of calls to assist them, helping people trapped between landslips on the roads in Argyll. For about 24 hours all roads in and out of Oban were blocked with roads flooded in the town , no access to most of the supermarkets.
Looks like another day of it  coming on Tuesday, Oban MRT have been put on standby to assist Police Scotland from 0200 hours.

Looking at the TV reports on the Scottish floods they look horrendous and the MRT and the Police have their work cut out coping with this deluge.      I hope that there is no loss of life caused by the unprecedented rainfall you are having up there and that you are safe and not flooded out on the island.

I think there is another weather warning for today. It wasn't too bad here despite some heavy rain there was no flooding. The River Nith was high but didn't flood to my knowledge. I know it was much worse further north and severe problems were created by landslips. I think there was a very bad one at the Rest and be Thankful pass.

There's bound to be soggy sandwiches in the New Inn Dyserth today after that flood.     Such a shame as we were there a month ago and enjoyed a nice meal there

I had a walk over the footbridge in Dyserth on the 3rd October 2023 but just look at the volume of water that has recently gone under the bridge.   It's no wonder the New Inn was flooded on the 20th October 2023

According to a recent weather forecast, Britain is in for a two-week spell of ice and snow as winter makes an early appearance. A sharp drop in temperatures was felt across the UK yesterday, (November 24), with cold air from the Arctic ushering in a prolonged period of colder weather.

The chilly conditions are expected to persist over the weekend and beyond, with temperatures plunging sharply overnight in some northern regions and remaining just above freezing in the south. Meteorologists predict that the night will bring temperatures as low as -4C in Wales and -5C in the rural South West.

The Met Office has mentioned the possibility of sleet and snow in the north of Scotland and on peaks exceeding 400 meters (1,312 feet). According to a report in WalesOnline, today (Saturday) is expected to be the coldest night of the year across the country, with the first sub-zero temperatures.
