Impacts for the Western Isles
As mentioned above no warnings have been issued at this stage for the Western isles.
We are going to see some heavy and possibly slow moving rain for the islands on Sunday into Monday. Not expecting to see any warnings as this is just kinda what we would expect rainfall wise at this time of year. winds gusting 30 to 40 mph. Possibly in some spots reaching 50 mph. But again that really isn’t anything significant.
I will keep you updated over the course of the weekend and if the situation changes.
