Tue 29 Jul 2014

Cloudy with some patchy rain at first, this will soon clear the west coast and the mainland by mid morning to leave a day of bright or sunny intervals and a few showers. These showers will be more frequent to the northwest of the Great Glen with the odd heavier one there, while the Trossachs will see just the odd shower. In the evening cloud will increase to bring more in the way of showers to Argyll.
