Tuesday 25th October afternoon forecast update

Good afternoon all. I was unable to do a morning briefing this morning. So this is just a quick afternoon update for you all.

On this Tuesday afternoon, we are seeing some rain and showers moving across the islands and these are heavy in places. Plenty of cloud with some sunny spells. Winds gusting 30 mph.

The Scottish Environment Protect Agency has issued a flood alert for the Western Isles. Full details can be found here https://floodline.sepa.org.uk/floodupdates/info/group-id/4964/

There have been a lot of changes with the forecast for the rest of this week and into the Weekend with areas of low pressure sitting close to the Western Isles but there is some uncertainty as to how close they will get to our islands. We are going to see stronger winds and rain for the rest of the week but nothing too extreme at this stage.

Wednesday

Heavy overnight rain will give way to rain and showers during the day on Wednesday with some sunshine at times. The rain will turn lighter into the late evening. Plenty of cloud with some sunshine. Winds of 20 to 40 mph gusting 50/ 55 mph during the afternoon and evening. Winds will be from the South and South East shifting South West later in the day. Temps of 10C to 15C

Thursday

Overnight further strong winds gusting 40 to 50 mph. With some rain and showers. Then sunshine and showers during Thursday itself. Winds will ease during the day under 20 mph but increasing again for Uist and Barra during the evening. Winds will be from the South and South West shifting South East. Temps of 12C to 14C

Friday

Another day of sunshine and showers these will be heavy at times. Some decent spells of sunshine in the breaks in the cloud. Winds of 20 to 40 mph gusting 50 mph from the South and South East shifting South West. Temps of 10C to 14C

Saturday will see sunshine and showers with light winds. We could see some stronger winds on Sunday gusting 50 to 60 mph but again that is subject to uncertainty.

Have a great afternoon
