Sunday 18th August Weather Watch

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

On this Sunday evening, we are seeing a few showers around some of these are heavy in places. But for most, it’s a dry evening with brisk winds a few sunny spells and plenty of cloud. Winds are lighter than we have seen for much of the weekend but a fairly brisk.

The rest of this evening will see further showers but they will become more scattered as the evening goes on some sunny spells and plenty of cloud.

Today’s view from space highlights a mixture of sunshine and showers.

Monday across the western house and once again we are stuck in a familiar rut we are going to see a mixture of sunshine and showers some of the showers will be heavy possibly merging into some longer spells of rain. Brisk wins once again and feeling cool.

Tuesday across the Western Isles and we going to have a much more settled day as a ridge of high-pressure building conditions are going to be a lot more settled and we are going to see a mixture of sunshine and cloud and a largely dry day. But winds will increase as the day goes on and a chance of some rain by evening.

Wednesday across the Western Isles we are going to see the next area of low pressure pushing across Scotland. 992 Mb will bring heavy rain and further strong and blustery winds to all parts. It will initially start dry on Wednesday but the rain will reach all parts by the end of the day.

Looking ahead for the rest of the week and it’s going to stay unsettled wet and windy with further areas of low pressure pushing across the Western Isles.
