Good morning Fairy, Verdun and all G'day Pat
Blue skies and dry here - a bit breezy but nothing to worry about. It'll dry the ground out a little . The lowest temp overnight was 8.9C. I'm sure the Hebrides will cope with Abigail - they know how to keep their heads down. Schools are closed and ferry sailings cancelled.
Don't know whether you can access this link Pat http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-34794583 .
Can't believe that there was a hillwalker on Ben Nevis last night! What an idiot? I wouldn't have blamed the rescue teams if they'd left him there - but they never do that.
