Good afternoon Western isles we are seeing a mostly cloudy afternoon across the Western isles. The best of the sunshine is across the Uists and Barra. Winds aren light.
The view from space highlights the cloud across the Western isles with clearer skies across the Uists and Barra.
Latest radar shows the cloud bank moving a little further northward allowing for more sunshine.
The rest of today will see plenty of sunshine for the Uists and Barra. More cloud with a few sunny spells across Lewis and Harris. Winds will stay light.
Thursday will yet again see settled conditions. Winds will be light a mixture of sunny spells and cloud. The odd shower is possible but for most it will stay dry.
The UK remains under the dominance of high pressure.
Friday will see the sunshine return. Prolonged and even wall to wall at times. Winds will increase and it will be breezy.
Across the UK high pressure stays in charge. A mass of weather fronts and areas of low pressure out in the Atlantic are kept at bay by the high pressure.
Saturday and little change. Winds will increase gusting 30/40 mph across the Uists and Barra. But despite this we should still see plenty of sunshine. Prolonged for most.
As you can see from the chat the tightening of the isobars introducing windier weather. The rest of the UK stays settled.
Looking long range and things are expected to stay settled into next week with no real signs of change.
On Tuesday Lewis and Harris had multiple moor fires and this resulted in a power cut which in places lasted several hours.
Levi Stammers got this photo from the Harris ferry.
And Joan Smith took this photo just outside Tarbert Harris.
