Good afternoon Western Isles and welcome to your latest Weather Watch blog.
On this Monday afternoon we are seen rain moving across the Western Isles, some of this is heavy in places. My forecast for today wasn’t the best, the rain has moved closer to the Western Isles then was initially expected. I did make some adjustments this morning in the morning brief after my initial forecast last night.
It was always going to be a tricky forecast and thus proved to be. Not everywhere has seen rain and some parts of the Western Isles has stayed dry.
