Good evening all and welcome to the latest Western Isles Weather Watch. The Weather Watch takes a look at the weather across the Western Isles and Tiree, as well as covering any weather events of note across the UK and the rest of the world.
To start this edition of the weather watch we are going to discuss the upcoming weather for the Western Isles and Tiree. These are the two locations that I do twice daily forecasts for. So after such a disappointing May, we are seeing a spell of more settled weather across the islands with high pressure in charge. Fine dry and sunny weather. We have seen the highest temperature of the year so far on the 3rd of June for Met Office sites in South Uist 17C and Tiree 16.7C
Looking towards the weekend. High pressure remains in charge and we are going to see fine and settled weather across Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Winds will be light and we are likely to see temperatures reaching 18C to 19C. Should be little or no rain. Any rain will be scattered showers.
You can see from the Met Office chart below high pressure dominating across Northern Scotland on Sunday
Beyond Monday and we are getting into longer range and things become more uncertain as we go further out into time. Things look mostly settled for the middle of the week but high pressure not as strong and we see the encroachment of weather fronts. By the end of the week, it looks increasingly likely that we will see another period of Atlantic dominated weather with things turning increasingly wet and with stronger winds. I will keep you updated.
Next week take a look at the weather across the globe.
