Good evening Western Isles on this Tuesday evening we are seeing heavy showers moving across the islands. Clear skies and cloud. Some of the showers wintry at times. Winds gusting 40 to 50 mph and today’s high of 9.4C

A reminder a Met Office yellow weather warning for wind and snow comes into force at 13:00 Wednesday afternoon and expires at 15:00 Thursday afternoon. The full warning and latest updates can be found via the Met Office website or app.

I am still doing shorter and limited updates at the moment but hope to back to normal towards the end of the week.
