Met Office Warnings for South West Scotland 19/20th October.

Good afternoon the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for parts of South West Scotland on Monday and Tuesday. This comes as no surprise as this was forecast for a good few days now. NO weather warnings have been issued at this stage for the Western Isles. However I will mention possible impacts for the Western Isles below.

Here is the full warning from the Met Office – The warning comes into force at 0300 Monday morning and expires at 0900 Tuesday morning.

Here is the text to go alongside the warning and impact scale

The full warning and latest updates can be found here https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings#?date=2020-10-19&id=95855521-23c1-4b96-b08a-c1cd950534bf&details

Western Isles

As mentioned above no weather warnings have been issued for us at this stage. I will update the page if any warnings do get issued.

The 06z run of the GFS model is suggesting anywhere from 40 to 50 mm of rainfall for the Western Isles from 0600 this morning till midnight Wednesday. Whilst the 00z run of the Euro model is suggesting 30 to 40 mm for the Western Isles. This covers from Midnight Sunday till Midnight Wednesday.

30 to 40 mph winds are also likely but are down from the 50 mph we were expecting to see a few days ago. Coming from the North and North East would likely cause some ferry disruption.
