Friday’s forecast – Sunshine and cloud with scattered showers

Good evening Western Isles on this Thursday evening we are seeing clear skies and cloud with some showers and heavy in places. Winds under 20 mph and today’s high of 13.9C

A day of mixture fortunes across the Western isles on Friday with 3.4 mm of rain at Stornoway and 4.3 hours of sunshine. Showers over the Uist and Barra this evening. Some parts of Harris got 6 mm of rain in the past 24 hours. It did feel noticeably cooler as well.

So Friday we are going to see high pressure strengthen across the Western Isles with the high centred to our West. As a result, we should see some single figure temperatures for the overnight low.

Overnight – Clear skies and cloud. Under clearing skies, we are going to see temps getting down to 5C in some spots but for Uist and Barra are expected to stay closer to 10C. A few showers and these will be heavy at times. Winds of 10 to 25 mph.

Morning and afternoon – Sunshine and cloud. Some decent and prolonged sunshine. A few showers again, but fairly scattered. Some of these will be heavy. Winds of 10 to 25 mph.

Evening – Sunshine and cloud with some clear skies after sunset. A few scattered showers but mainly dry. Winds under 20 mph.

Winds will be from the North and North West. Temps of 5C to 14C
