Monday 12th August Weather Watch

Good evening Western Isles and welcome to your latest Weather Watch blog.

On this Monday evening, we are seeing a mixture of sunshine and cloud. A few showers around but these are mostly on coastal fringes. Breezy winds and it’s feeling warm in the sunshine.

The rest of this evening should be largely fine and dry a few scattered showers around but plenty of sunshine and feeling warm in the sunshine. It will be breezy and will see a mixture of cloud and clear skies to end the day.

Today’s view from space highlights the mixture of sunshine and cloud. It’s been rather pleasant under the afternoon sunshine.

Tuesday across the Western Isles and we going to see a largely fine and dry day. Plenty of sunshine and feeling warm again in the sunshine. Variable amounts of cloud stubborn to shift in places with a few scattered showers. Winds of around 10 to 20 mph.

Wednesday across the Western Isles and once again we are going to see a day of sunshine and showers occasionally these will be heavy at times but in between, we should see some decent and prolonged sunshine. It will be breezy again.

Thursday across the Western Isles and once again we are going to see another day of sunshine and showers the cloud will increase as we go into the evening and we are also going to see the winds increase possibly gusting up to 30 mph.

Looking ahead towards the end of the week and as you can see from the image above an area of low pressure is developing out in the Atlantic. On this chart, we can see a low pressure of 986 millibars. This will bring wind and rain and increasingly unsettled conditions as we go into the weekend. A long way off as yet so plenty will change between now and then.

In the UK weather news, multiple waterspouts have reported along the UK coastline today.

Due to recent heavy rainfall, a river in Northumberland has burst its banks causing flooding in the area. More on this can be found on the BBC news website.

And more heavy rain is expected in the next 24 hours with a yellow weather warning for rain being issued for part of Northwest England.

And finally, here are the weather extremes across the UK on Sunday.
