Good afternoon Western isles we are seeing a fairly dry and sunny afternoon across the Western isles. The cloud has cleared quicker then was expected across Lewis and Harris. Some light rain and drizzle. Winds are mostly light.

The rest of this evening should be fine and dry with variable amount of sunshine and cloud.

Today’s view from space highlights the sunshine and cloud across the Western isles. It also highlights the area of low pressure off Ireland. A classic example of an area of low pressure.

Thursday is going to see a day of sunshine and cloud with some light rain and drizzle. Feeling colder and temperatures will drop during the day.

A cold front sweeps across the UK. High pressure sits to the south.

Friday is going to see chilly day with a brisk Northerly wind. A mixture of sunshine and light rain and drizzle. Variable amounts of cloud.

The cold front pushes further south and cold air pushes down from the North.

Saturday the winds are expected to ease. Becoming more settled some light rain and drizzle.

Across the northerly flow eases somewhat high pressure and becomes a little more settled.

Long range – things are expected to stay fairly unsettled and on the chilly side.
