Thank you for reading be safe.

Sunday morning brief

Good morning Western Isles this is your morning briefing

Again this is likely to be a longer morning briefing than normal. A reminder the Western Isles Council has a statement on their social media regarding today’s severe weather.

So the Met Office Amber warning comes into force at 17:00 Sunday evening and expires at 06:00 Monday morning. A yellow warning comes into force two hours earlier at 15:00 and expires six hours later at 18:00. The full warning and latest updates can be found via the Met Office website or app.

Please do NOT use Western Isles Weather for the protection of life and property please follow local and national government issued warnings and advice. Please have more than one source for weather information in extreme weather, Such as the Met office and follow any advice and instructions from emergency responders.

On this Sunday morning, we are seeing rain and drizzle moving across the Western isles. Plenty of cloud. Winds under 20 mph and an overnight low of 2.5C

Today – Rain is already feeding across the Western Isles this will become heavy and persistent and slow moving. This will last into the late evening before turning showery and squally. Some of the showers at this point will be wintry and thundery at times. Winds of 20 to 40 mph gusting 50 to 60 mph. As the passage of the area of low pressure moves across the Western Isles, we will see winds increase and temperatures drop. Winds will move from the South and South West and come in from the North West. This is where we will see winds gusting 70 to 80 mph possibly in some spots gusting 90 mph. This will happen between 4 pm and 8 pm, not all places will hit the strongest winds with the passage of the low may just gust to 60 mph. After the low clears winds will still gust 50 to 65 mph. Please be safe. There is the chance that things that were damaged yesterday could be weakened further by additional strong winds. I know we are used to strong winds leaving up here but would rather everyone keep safe this is going to be a period of sustained strong winds this is worth taking seriously.

Monday and Tuesday – Staying windy with squally showers wintry at times gusting 40 to 50 mph.

Wednesday – Brisk winds showers. Overcast with sunny spells.

Have a great day.

Sunday’s forecast – Storm Corrie

This is going to be a long update so bear with us but I want to give you as much information as possible and it has been a long time since an Amber warning was issued for the Western Isles. The last one was for Storm Caroline in 2017. The 2015 storm that hit in January was an Amber storm but I thought should have been a red warning. This I don’t expect to be as powerful as that.

So the Met Office Amber warning comes into force at 17:00 Sunday evening and expires at 06:00 Monday morning. A yellow warning comes into force two hours earlier at 15:00 and expires six hours later at 18:00. The full warning and latest updates can be found via the Met Office website or app.

Please do NOT use Western Isles Weather for the protection of life and property please follow local and national government issued warnings and advice. Please have more than one source for weather information in extreme weather, Such as the Met office and follow any advice and instructions from emergency responders.

Now on this Saturday evening winds have abated we are seeing heavy and squally showers moving across the islands. Plenty of cloud but decent amounts of clear spells. Winds gusting 30 mph and today’s high of 11.1C

Overnight – Clear skies and cloud. A few scattered showers but most places staying dry with a touch of frost and ice in places. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.

Morning – Sunshine and cloud first thing but rain and cloud will move across the islands and this will become heavy and persistent. Winds will slowly start to increase. gusting 20 to 40 mph.

Afternoon and evening – This is the challenging part. Depending on the exact track of the low will determine how strong the winds get. The strongest winds will occur when the winds go from the South West to the North West. At this stage, the strongest winds look set to be from Harris, North and South Uist, Benbecula, Eriskay, Bernery, Barra and Vatersay. But deviations further North will bring stronger winds further North. Do not underestimate this system. It will not be the worst we have ever seen but these winds will be powerful. I would rather an abundance of caution and for it not to be as bad people expected. So winds will strethen gusting 50 to 60 mph widely. Stronger winds for the above Southern locations gusting 70 to 80 mph. In some exposed coastal spots reaching 90 mph. Easing down a little late evening to gust 60 mph widely. We will see heavy and persistant slow moving rain push across the islands. Upon the low pressure clearing away and the main band of heavy easing we will left with a sqaully showery regime in its wake. This heavy and wintry at times. Possibly thundery.

Winds will be from the Souh and South West shifting North West. Temps of 2C to 10C but feeling colder in the wind chill.

Sunrise and Sunset

Stornoway – 08:35 and 16:43

South Uist – 08:35 and 16:52

Outlook

Monday and Tuesday – Squally showers heavy at times. Plenty of cloud. Winds gusting 20 to 40 mph from the North West. Temps of 2C to 10C
