Tuesday’s forecast – Winds increasing

Good evening Western Isles on this Monday evening we are seeing plenty of cloud with some rain and showers and these are heavy in places. Winds under 20 mph and today’s high of 16.1C

Monday was another fairly dull day across the islands with some sunshine at times. Outbreaks of rain and drizzle but nothing too significant. Winds remained fairly light.

For Tuesday high pressure declines further away as it does weather fronts will move in from the Atlantic. We will see spells of rain and increasing rain.

Overnight – We are going to see a cloud dominated night with spells of rain and drizzle. Some heavier showers at times. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.

Morning and afternoon – Fairly overcast with spells of rain and drizzle. Heavy rain at times. Some sunny spells but mainly staying cloud. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.

Evening – Again plenty of cloud with some clear spells. Patchy rain and drizzle at times. Winds of 10 to 30 mph.

Winds will be from the South West. Temps of 12C to 16C

Outlook

Wednesday – Overcast with spells of rain and drizzle. Winds of 20 to 40 mph. Heavy and persistent rain to end the day. Winds gusting 50 mph by the end of the day from the South West. Temps of 12C to 16C

Thursday – Heavy and persistent overnight rain then sunshine and cloud with scattered showers Winds gusting 50 mph during the night. Winds easing under 20 mph during the day from the South West. Temps 11C to 15C

Friday and Saturday – Sunshine and cloud with a few scattered showers. But mainly dry. Winds under 20 mph and feeling cooler again. Winds will shift from the North West. Temps of 7C to 15C

The weekend and beyond – We are likely to see an area of low pressure bring rain and stronger winds for a time during Sunday possibly gusting 50 mph. Once that clears away it could bring down some much colder air from the North. Similar to what we saw end of last week but possibly lower temperatures. Something I am keeping an eye on.

Have a great evening
