Thursday 11th August Weather forecast for the Western Isles.

Good evening Western Isles on this Wednesday evening we are seeing some rain and drizzle with plenty of cloud. Some rain and drizzle mainly across Lewis and Harris. Winds gusting 25 mph. Todays high of 19.1C

19.1C was the highest temperature at Stornoway Airport this is shown on the image below with credit to Roost Weather.

I don’t ask for much but I really could do with some more sunshine. Its been warm but we are really lacking on the sunshine front. Yes another heatwave for the Southern half of the UK. We just have to make the most of the good days or good half days that we get.
