Mention the phrase Aberdeen Weather and most people will think of rain throughout the year and when it is not raining it is snowing! However that is not the case. The weather forecast in Aberdeen often predicts sun and Aberdonians and lucky tourists often experience sunny days. Some Scottish people even fondly nickname Aberdeen as the sunny city. When you look at a typical 5 day weather forecast for Aberdeen such as the Aberdeen BBC weather report it usually features a sunny picture.
Here are some Aberdeen Scotland weather facts.
November 2007 saw extreme weather hit Aberdeenshire and the UK with gusts of wind as high as 65mph. There were fears of floods due to heavy and sudden rainfall and the risk of snow and ice after the winter storms of the 8 November 2007. The met office had issued a gale warning that may disrupt power supplies and cause damage to buildings. Though Aberdeen had recently enjoyed an Indian Summer the temperature dropped considerably to about 7C during the day and about 2C at night.
This harsh Aberdeenwinter weather was repeated towards the end of November 2007. The heavy rain caused several rivers to burst their banks such as the River Ury at Inverurie. The highest rainfall recorded by the Met Office was at Fyvie Castle where 40mm of rain fell in a 24 hour period.
June 2007 was the wettest Aberdeenweather since weather records were started in the year 1914. This record saw 67% more rain when compared to the 30 year
average rain fall of 68.8 millimetres. By the middle of June Aberdeen rainfall was at 110.4mm. This heavy rainfall resulted in events being cancelled and some more
rural parts of Aberdeenshire being flooded though some drains in Aberdeen could not cope with the down pour. For example the heavy metal drain covers at Aberdeen
Beach retail park were lifted up during flooding with the high water pressure. Temperatures ranged from 11C to 19C. When compared to the UK Scotland escaped the
severe flood damage to houses and severe weather warnings from the Met office that hit England and Wales. Many homes were evacuated, rescue centres had to be opened
and the RAF and Army were deployed to help the emergency services.
In June 1948 151.6mm rain fell in Aberdeen City.
In the summer of 1957 392.8mm of rain fell in Aberdeen.

Easter 2008 fell early and was celebrated on Sunday 23 March. On the Good Friday high winds swept across the UK and Aberdeenshire saw wind speeds of up to 65 miles per hour recorded in areas such as Rosehearty in Fraserburgh.

2008 saw some harsh Aberdeen weather conditions. For example on the 4 January 08 skiers on the Cairngorm Mountain by Aviemore encountered winds of up to 100 miles per hour
and temperature as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius. Patrols had to escort skiers off the mountains for their safety and a warning klaxon had to be sounded to warn anyone in

In Aberdeen City the harbour was closed on Thursday 3, Friday 4 and Saturday 5 January 2008 because of the rough seas causing a danger to ships and boats. High waves were
seen crashing into the entrance of Aberdeen harbour. For safety no vessels were permitted into Aberdeen harbour during these dates.

the rain set off the fire alarms. A funnel cloud, a mini tornado that does not reach ground level was seen in Newmachar, Aberdeenshire. The heaviest rain fall was
in Aboyne which saw 15.2 millimetres of rain in 24 hours. Other parts of Aberdeen which saw some flooding were Jesmond Drive at Bridge of Don.

79% more at 108mm and there was only 98.5 hours of sunshine for the entire month. The average temperature was 17.2 Celsius. This made summer 2007 the wettest that
the North East of Scotland has had for 50 years. The summer months of June, July and August saw 374.5mm of rainfall.

in Dyce and Pennan suffered a landslide.
The heaviest rain fall in the UK at the beginning of August was at Fyvie Castle with 43mm recorded overnight.
