Good evening Western isles we have plenty to talk about with today’s weather watch.
On this Friday evening we are seeing an almost dry end to the day. It’s dry with plenty of sunshine for most. But a couple of showers have popped up and some of these are heavy in places.
Today’s view from space is a beautiful one showing plenty of blue skies and sunshine with cloud “streets”
Saturday across the Western isles will see a fine and dry day with variable amounts of cloud. Some sunshine and it will be breezy. One of the warmest days of late with temperatures reaching the mid teens. The odd light shower cannot be ruled out.
Across the UK we are going to see a mostly fine dry day with plenty of sunshine and feeling warm. A few scattered showers for Scotland.
Sunday for the Western isles will see a mostly fine and dry day. Some light rain and drizzle is possible. Winds under 10mph. An overcast day with a few sunny spells. Feeling warm again.
Sunday for the UK will start off hot with rain pushing into the evening and risk of thunderstorms. More on this shortly.
Monday plenty of uncertainty as yet but we are likely to see rain on Monday which will be heavy at times during the morning. We are also going to see brisk winds gusting 20/30 mph. After a wet start the rest of the day should be mostly fine and dry.
For the UK things turn a lot more unsettled with thunderstorms and a risk of them being severe.
Long range it’s looking warm for next week and mostly dry. Temps are expected to reach the high teens and possibly low 20s. I’ve seen some site reporting temps up to 23c there really isn’t much model support for this at this stage so should be taken with some level of caution.
Now thunderstorms are expected across large parts of the UK towards the end of the weekend and start of next week. Lots of uncertainty as yet. So please check the Met Office website or app for the very latest updates.
The warnings also cover parts of Scotland could result in difficult road conditions so something to keep in mind if you are travelling .
And finally here are Thursdays Weather extremes for the UK. Notice the 3 way tie for most rainfall
