Tuesday we are going to see a mixture of sunshine and showers. Some of the showers will be heavy at times. It’s going to be a breezy. Winds of 10/30 mph.

Low pressure sits to our west and high pressure sits to our east with a cold front across Ireland. Now see the cold front across Norway keep an eye on it.

Wednesday is going to see more settled conditions as the cold front clears away. Plenty of prolonged sunshine across the Uists and Barra. Light winds, more cloud for Lewis and Harris with patchy rain.

You still watching that cold front?! It’s surging south. It will bring cold air further south with risk of the odd wintry shower and night time frost later in the week. But fo now low pressure 1008 mb will bring unsettled conditions to the UK.

Thursday a Northerly wind sets up as the cold air pushes southwards. Could be some ferry disruption winds gusting 30/40 mph. We will see some showers these could be heavy and a chance wintry.

Across the UK the cold front slides southwards. Turning colder. High pressure sits to the south of the UK.

Long range staying fairly settled as we go into the weekend. But staying on the cool side.
