Saturday 25 October
Getting windy, force 6 to 7. The ferry has been cancelled for the rest of the day, after it gets in at 1.30pm. Apart from the high winds, which are set to increase to force 8 later, and force 9 in the southern isles, it's not too bad a day. Sun's out, and there are a few showers about. 12C / 54F is pretty ordinary for late October. Very heavy showers coming through here at 4.30pm, wind a steady force 7 from the southwest.
By evening, the gale we had been warned about did not materialise. We've got a steady force 7 going, with some pretty good gusts. The wind will only gradually die down over the next 24 hours. The Highlands could get 4 to 8 inches (100 to 200 mm) of rain this weekend.
