Wednesday forecast – Cold icy with wintry showers and occasional snow.


Good evening Western isles on this Tuesday evening we are seeing a cold evening with some wintry showers. A mixture of clear skies and some frost and ice. Winds under 20 mph. Temps down to 2.7C
A reminder we remain under a Met Office yellow weather warning for snow and ice across the Western Isles. The warning is enforce until 23:59 Wednesday evening. The full warning and lastest updates can be found via the Met Office website or app.
Overnight – We are going to see a widespread frost and ice. Temps will get close to or below freezing in many locations and likely be the coldest night of the winter. Some wintry showers sleet and snow. These could result in some accumulations of snow for a time. Greatest risk over higher ground. Lots of uncertainty and I don’t expect the same widespread snow cover we had over the weekend. Temps could get as low as -2/-3C away from the coasts. Winds under 20 mph.
Morning and afternoon – lingering snow and ice will be slow clear as temps will stay below 5C for most throughout the day and in some spots struggling above freezing. Some sunny spells but these short lived for most. Some further sleet and snow showers but at times turning back to rain. Feeling cold and winds increasing as the afternoon progresses. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.
Evening – Further wintry showers, Sleet and rain. Fairly well scattered. Clear skies and once again frost and ice widely. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.
Winds will be from the North and North West. Temps of -3C to 5C
