Title: New Member saying Hello
Post by: Wuffing on November 21, 2011, 02:36:18 PM
Hello,
I'm a fairly new member (joined 42 mins ago) and don't have a weather station myself but came across this forum in a search for detailed daily weather records for Loch Ness or nearby.

I found a comprehensive set of records for Elgol but have utterly failed to grasp the workings of the search facility so far.

Is there a nearer (to Loch Ness than Elgol) member with online records giving conditions at different times of the day, particularly wind direction and speed? My immediate interest is for the conditions on 28 - 08- 2011. Thank you very much. W

Welcome to the forum.

If you look on the map on the main website you'll see where all the network stations are located.
The nearest to Loch Ness is at Teanassie, near Beauly but sadly this station seems to have been off line since April.
The next closest are the two in Dingwall.

Welcomr to the forum.

That's mine.  :)
However, as you undoubtedly realise, in weather & climate terms Elgol data is not terribly useful for reference to Loch Ness. As well as not being very close (at least in Scottish terms) the two locations are quite different in nature. Temp, wind, rain, sunshine, etc. are all likely to be markedly different.

Thank you for the information, and the welcome. There was a weather station at Foyers power station a few years ago but I haven't managed to make contact with the operators yet, so I don't know if it still exists. W.
