Monday 15th April Weather Watch

Good afternoon Western isles and we are seeing another windy day across most of the Western isles. Strongest across the Uists and Barra where has gusted in excess of 50 mph.

We are seeing some rain across the Uists and Barra at the moment. A little heavier then forecast but it was always going to be hard to forecast how heavy it would get today. Very hit and miss.

Today’s view from space shows once again that Lewis and Harris are getting the best of the sunshine.

Tuesday is going to see the winds ease down. However we are going to see rain push across the Western isles which will be heavy and persistent during the afternoon and evening.

Elsewhere high pressure has retreated back slightly towards Scandinavia. Another of area of low pressure 990 mb will push past the UK later in the week.

Wednesday is expected to be fine and dry. A mixture of sunshine and cloud. It will start to become milder. With temps getting into the teens.

High pressure reasserts itself across the UK. Weak areas of low pressure in the Atlantic.

Thursday increasing amounts of cloud and light winds. Feeling mild with a chance of the highest temperature of the year so far.

High pressure sits over the UK with milder air being drawn in.

Long range

BBC Weather are highlighting the rise in temperatures for the end of the week. I expect we could see high teens in the Western isles. But things can change between now and then I will keep you updated.

Thank you for reading.
