Good evening Western Isles on this Saturday evening we are seeing plenty of cloud with some sunshine. Some rain and drizzle in patches along with some widespread mist and low cloud. Winds gusting 30 mph and today’s high of 17.5C.
Stornoway Airport today recorded 17.5C at 15:00 making it the highest temperature of the year so far at the Stornoway Airport Met Office site. South Uist still holds the highest temp of 18C on the 5th of June.
Overnight – Further spells of rain and drizzle. Mist and low cloud. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.
Morning and afternoon – Again plenty of cloud with some mist and drizzle. Some breaks in the cloud with some sunshine at times. The best of this sunshine will be across Lewis and Harris during the afternoon but for some, the cloud will prove stubborn to clear. With the sunshine, there is a chance we could see temperatures into the high teens again.
Evening – Into the evening again sunshine and cloud with some rain and drizzle. But for most, it will stay dry. Winds of 10 to 25 mph.
Winds will be from the West and South West. Temps of 10C to 19C

An area of low pressure will move between Scotland and the Western Isles during the course of Monday night into Tuesday which will see a spell of strengthening winds during the course of Monday into Tuesday. Worth keeping in mind if you have outdoor plans.
We are going to see an overcast day with rain moving in later in the day. Winds of 20 to 40 mph gusting 50 mph later in the day. We could see some gusts reaching 55 mph for a time overnight. Rain overnight into Tuesday with further strong winds which will eventually ease during Tuesday with sunshine and cloud. Winds will be from the South and South West. Temps of 11C to 18C
Wednsday and Thursday
We are going to see a few days of sunshine and showers. There is some computer model suggestion that we will see some heavy rain moving across the islands on Thursday. A long way off as yet but keeping an eye on it. Winds of 20 to 40 mph from the West and South West. Temps of 11C to 17C
Have a great evening
