Good evening all. Earlier this evening the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for winds for the Western Isles from 04:00 Tuesday morning until 18:00 Tuesday evening.

At this stage wind speeds don’t look they will be as strong as we saw on Sunday where 80 to 85 mph was reached at times. The very strongest of the winds will be for Uist and Barra again around 60 to 70 mph for Lewis and Harris 50 to 65 mph. I will have a full in depth forecast for tomorrow later this evening.
