Good morning Western Isles this is your morning brief
On this Tuesday we are under a Met Office Yellow weather warning for thunderstorms for the rest of the day and a SEPA flood alert. The latest information on both can be found via the SEPA website and the Met Office website or app.
This morning we are seeing some rain it is light for most and plenty of cloud. Winds are light under 15 mph and an overnight low of 12C
Despite being under the weather warning for thunderstorms the threat for us is likely to be low to very low. We could see the odd rumble in this mornings band of rain outside that it should be dry.
Pollen forecast for today is low
Today – A band of heavy rain is moving over Skye as I type this. It will bring heavy rain to both Lewis and Harris and maybe even into the North Uist during the next few hours. This will be slow moving and could produce the odd rumble of thunder. Once this clears it should be fine and dry with plenty of sunshine and prolonged sunshine. Feeling warm again with variable amounts of cloud. Winds under 20 mph and temps reaching 20C. The odd isolated shower cannot be ruled out but most places should be dry after the main band of rain clears.
Wednesday – A slight risk of thundery showers overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Wednesday itself will be fine and dry with plenty of sunshine and cloud. Winds light again and temps in the mid teens.
Thursday – fine dry and sunny. With winds gusting 20 to 30 mph.
Long range – end of the week and into the weekend looks fine dry and sunny.
Have a great day.
