Good afternoon Western Isles and welcome to your latest Weather Watch blog. A shorter edition today due to having such a hectic busy day.
On the Saturday afternoon we are seeing an overcast day for most. Some sunny intervals across Barra and Vatersay at the moment. Elsewhere we are seeing winds gusting 30 to 40 mph some p in excess of 40 mph. We are seeing light rain and drizzle which are persistent in places with occasional spells of heavy rain particularly across Lewis. There are some dry spells these are mainly found across the US and Barra.
The rest of today is going to see more of the same with light rain and drizzle periods of heavy rain gusty winds reaching 30 40 mph with the occasional sunny spells.
Across the Western Isles on Sunday and we are going to see the winds will slow ease down as the day goes on. Further spells of rain but it will gradually become a drier and brighter by the end of the day.
Monday across the Western Isles and we are going to see a day of sunshine and showers winds will be lighter than we have seen of late and some of the showers will be heavy at times in between some decent and prolonged sunshine but still feeling on the cool side.
