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.

Sunday

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
