It’s been a while but we are back with my Hebridean Celtic Festival forecasts for this year. I will be doing daily updates either in the morning or afternoon giving you the very latest on what to expect weather wise. I will be doing updates for Wednesday 13th to Sunday 17th with the main arena music occurring from Thursday to Saturday.
So in the first blog, we are going to talk about the trends for the whole festival. As we all know we want blue skies and sunshine with enough wind to keep the midgies at bay. Sadly this is July in Scotland….
We have been in a very stagnant period of weather across the island over the last few days. But this is set to change as we go into next week. Things are going to become more mobile. An area of low pressure bringing in stronger winds Monday into Tuesday. Spells of rain and showers are likely for the first two days of the festival at least. So I would defiantly pack waterproof shoes. I don’t expect significant rainfall but it doesn’t take a lot for the mud to be churned up at the festival site. Brisk winds are likely to be a feature of the entire weekend. Not strong winds but breezy enough no more than 30/35 mph. Saturday at this stage looks the best weather wise for drier conditions.
Despite all this. We are only on Sunday and things can and more than likely change between now and then so I will keep you updated. The next update will drop on Monday.
