Fridays 12th April Weather Watch

Good afternoon Western isles on this Friday afternoon we are seeing a mixture of sunshine and cloud. Brisk winds.

Today’s view from space highlights the mixture of sunshine and cloud, the cloud isn’t completely dominating. Even where cloud is present we are seeing hazy sunshine.

Radar shows the current dry conditions.

Saturday we are once again going to see a fine and dry day. A mixture of sunshine and cloud. The odd shower cannot be ruled out. Winds are going to increase gusting 30/40 mph with some gusts reaching 50 mph.

The reason for the stronger winds on Saturday is we are on the edge of a high pressure system with high pressure over Scandinavia and low pressure in the Atlantic.

Sunday is expected to see another dry day. Plenty of cloud however with a few sunny spells. We are going to see a brisk winds once again.

The low pressure out in the Atlantic moves into Greenland and a trailing occluded front sits over Ireland.

Monday will see a mixture of sunshine and cloud. It will be breezy and dry once again.

A deepening area of low pressure sits to the south west of the UK as high pressure remains firm over Scandinavia.

Next week things are expected to stay settled for most of next week, becomes more unsettled towards the end of the week.

This weekend brings the risk once again of wildfires. The Scottish fire and rescue service have issued advice.
