Weather of Scotland

» Normally, Scotland is more cloudy than England , due mainly to the hilly nature of the terrain. There is a general delusion that the whole of Scotland experiences high rainfall. In fact, rainfall in Scotland varies broadly ranging from over 3,000 mm per year in the western Highlands to under 800 mm per year near the east.

The most ordinary direction from which the wind blows in Scotland is the south-west, but the wind direction often changes noticeably from day to day with the channel of weather systems. In general, wind speed increases with height, with the strongest winds being practical over the top of hills and mountains. In general, January and February are the coldest months. The daytime maximum temperatures over low ground in Scotland in January and February average around 5 to 7 °C, but on rare occasions in the lee of high ground, temperatures can reach up to around 15°.

» In summer, the result of latitude on the quantity of heat received from the sun plays a key role in formative the temperature. Thus, temperatures in Scotland are generally a few degrees cooler than in England . For example, the average daily maximum temperature at Glasgow in July is 19°C compared with 22 °C in London . July and August are normally the warmest months in Scotland.

» Scotland often enjoys exceptional visibility, since the greater part of the country is distant from the industrial and populous areas of Britain and mainland Europe .

» The lowest temperatures occur inland, away from the moderating influence of the sea, in valleys into which the cold airs drain. It was under such conditions that the temperature fell to -27°C.
