Tuesday 19th July Weather forecast for the Western Isles.

Good evening Western Isles on this Monday evening we are seeing a humid end to the day. It’s mainly overcast with some rain moving across the islands heavy in places. Winds under 20 mph. Today’s high of 20.4C at Stornoway Airport is the highest at either Met Office site in the Western Isles this year.

Also makes it the highest temperature at the Stornoway site since the 31st of May 2021. Todays forecast played out how I feared it would with mist low cloud and fog. This impacted temperatures and the amount of sunshine.

We are going to see another warm day on Tuesday with us again seeing the chance of temps being in the low 20s in spots.

Overnight – A cloud dominating night with spells of rain heavy at times. Possibly thundery but the risk is quite low. Some mist and low cloud. Winds under 20 mph.

Morning and afternoon – A mixed day of sunshine and cloud with further spells of rain and showers heavy at times with some drizzle mist and low cloud at times. Winds under 20 mph.

Evening – Again further spells of rain heavy at times but eventually becoming drier by the end of the night with a mixture of sunshine and cloud. Winds under 20 mph.
