As you follow our Scotland adventure, I wanted to share a weekly snapshot of the climate we are enjoying here.
Today's weather forecast in Aberdeen, Scotland:
High: 9°C (49°F)
Wind: SW at 10 kmph (6 mph)
UV Index 2

Avg. High. 13°C (56°F)
Sunrise 07 :21

We have been enjoying such beautiful days for the last week. It often rains at night, but has been sunny during the day. The sun is much more intense here, brighter, whiter, because we are so far north.
The daytime temperatures have been cooler than normal, and the nights have been warmer (as you can see from the averages). Tomorrow doesn't look too windy, but we have had some gusty days. Also, I have never been in humid cold, but the high humidity makes it feel much colder than I expected.
As the weeks pass, you will want to watch the sun rise and set times as the days grow shorter. At the height of winter, the sun in only up for around seven hours.
Just a little taste of our weather here in Scotland...
