Good morning Western Isles welcome to the latest Weather Watch. Now this is an early Weather Watch today as I have quite a busy day ahead. I will try and update this again later this evening time permitting. So please be aware this was done before 11 am on Friday morning.
Now on this Friday morning we are seeing plenty of blue skies and sunshine even wall-to-wall sunshine in places. It’s breezy and there’s still some mist and low cloud lingering. Temperatures have already reached 17°C at the Celsius range. Temperatures are expected to reach 23°C as a maximum in parts of the Western Isles today with temperatures even reaching 30°C on the mainland in the North West Highlands.
Here is a recent radar grab that highlights that West is best today.
