Good evening Western Isles on this Tuesday evening we are seeing a mixture of sunshine and cloud. Its mostly dry with some light rain into the Uists. Its breezy. The worst of the rain is missing us at the moment but some extremely heavy rain across Ireland and South West Scotland which has resulted in a Met Office yellow warning for rain being issued for Northern Ireland.
I don’t think my forecast for today was the best for Lewis and Harris. Its been a tough forecast recently but the end of the day panned out how I hoped it would.
Overnight – We are going to see an overcast night with some clear spells. Some rain will spread into the Uists and Barra. Winds of 10 to 20 mph gusting 30 mph across the Uists and Barra.
Morning and afternoon – Its going to be an overcast day with the cloud dominating. A few sunny spells. We are going to see some showers cropping up but they are mostly expected to be light but we could see some heavier showers across the Uists and Barra especially into the afternoon. Winds of 10 to 20 mph gusting 30 mph across the Uists and Barra.
Evening – A few more breaks in the cloud are expected with some decent evening sunshine mainly across Lewis and Harris. Cloud is expected to be thickest across the Uists and Barra. Further spells of rain are likely here but again expected to be mostly light. Winds of 10 to 20 mph gusting 30 mph.
Winds will be Northerly and North Easterly direction and temps will range from 6c to 12C
