Weather Watch 1st May 2022

After a hiatus, we are back with our Weather Watch. This will be a weather blog covering weather across the UK and across the globe with some forecast specifics for the Western Isles and Tiree one being more former home and one being my current home. I will be aiming to do these at least once a week. Depending on weather activity and weather events to talk about.

As we move into the final month of Spring we take a look at the April Weather stats for Stornoway, South Uist and Tiree

Thanks to our friends at Roost Weather for the images http://starlingsroost.ddns.net/weather/ukobs/ukgraphs.php?type=month&field=summary&synop=03023&month=4&year=2022

Weather Outlook

In this section of the blog, we are going to take look at the forecast for the next week and talk about trends and anything of note. mainly for our islands but covering the UK with anything of note.

For the next week, there seems to be a good consensus that things are going to be a bit more on the unsettled side. Nothing too extreme but after the best of 10 days of dry weather we are going to see more in the way of cloud. High pressure mainly across the South of the UK with shallow areas of low pressure moving across Scotland. Rain and showers moving in on Tuesday and again Thursday into Friday. Possibility of further rain into the weekend. But high pressure tries to build in from the East over next weekend. Hopefully, settle things down again. The warmest day of the week could be Wednesday getting into the teens but the cloud and rain will likely keep temperatures around double figures.

My twice daily forecasts will keep you up to date across our social media

USA

Finally to the USA its peak tornado season and we have some insane tornado footage in the last couple of days.

Thanks for reading any feedback is welcome.
