Week ahead forecast – A good week with the odd hiccup 7/6/15

This is quite possibly the most positive forecast I’ve done so far this year. Fingers crossed it don’t change as the week goes on.

On this Sunday evening we have a scattering of showers across the Western Isles. But many areas are enjoying a dry end to the weekend. With some decent and prolonged sunshine.

Monday

Overnight Sunday into Monday and we are going to see some showers across the Western Isles. They should be mostly light in nature and we should see plenty of clear spells. Into Monday morning and some prolonged morning sunshine is expected to start the new week. Some cloud around and it will be stubborn to shift in places. Into the afternoon and the very best of the sunshine is expected across the Southern Half of the Western Isles. We are going to see more cloud and a scattering of showers for the Northern Half but despite this we should still see some decent and times prolonged sunshine in the breaks in the cloud. Into the evening and overnight into Tuesday and we should see some decent clear spells. Winds will be from a Westerly and North Westerly direction around 10 to 20 mph. Temps will range from 6C to 12C

Tuesday

Overnight Monday into Tuesday and we are going to see a fine and dry night. Plenty of clear spells. Into Tuesday day time and it should be a dry day. Now the odd shower cannot be ruled out. There will be more cloud around. Despite this we should still see some decent and prolonged sunshine. The very best again being across the Southern Half. Winds will be from a Westerly and South Westerly direction around 10 to 30 mph. Temps will range from 7C to 15C

Wednesday

Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday and we are going to see the cloud thicken in for many areas. It should stay dry. Now into Wednesday day time and we are going to see a lot of cloud around the best of any sunshine is likely to be across the Southern Half of the Western Isles. A scattering of showers is possible and likely to be one of those hiccups. The rain should clear away by the evening and but the cloud is expected to dominate. Winds will be from a Westerly and South Westerly direction around 20 to 40 mph. Temps will range from 7C to 15C

Thursday

Another hiccup is expected on Thursday. A cloud dominated day is forecast. Little or no sunshine is expected. Rain is likely across the Northern Half of the Western Isles overnight Wednesday into Thursday. The rain will be heavy at times. Once this clears as we go into the afternoon is should become mostly dry but the cloud is expected to dominate. The Southern Half of the Western Isles will see plenty of cloud but should start the day dry, But rain will start to spread in by late morning and again here it will be heavy and few showers will remain for the rest of the evening. Winds will be from a Westerly and South Westerly direction around 10 to 30 mph. Temps will range from 8C to 13C

A scattering of overnight Showers is expected to clear as we get into Friday morning. By Friday morning the cloud should start to break and we should have some decent and prolonged sunshine. There will be plenty of cloud around and a risk of some light showers around. Winds will be from a Northerly and North Easterly direction around 10 to 30 mph and temps will be around 8C to 13C
