Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

A dry but cloudy start. However, rain soon spreads into the Western Isles during the morning, reaching the mainland by midday with a risk of gales across the Hebrides. The rain continues to spread east through the afternoon, often heavy. Maximum temperature 17 °C.

Tonight:

The rain turns increasingly patchy this evening with a chance of some late brightness for the Western Isles. Mainly dry but cloudy overnight. Some sharp coastal showers by dawn. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

Thursday:

Mostly cloudy, but some sunny spells towards Aviemore. Showers are likely to affect the west coast throughout the day, these heavy at times and mainly focused over Wester Ross. Maximum temperature 18 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Rain or showers on Friday with winds strengthening later in the day. Blustery showers and strong northwest winds Saturday, but drier and less windy later. Further rain on Sunday.

Updated: 03:18 on Wed 16 Aug 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain arriving in the west. Dry with sunny spells elsewhere.

Today:

Rain, heavy at times, will gradually spread east across northern and western parts, with freshening winds. However, it will stay dry with sunny spells across central, eastern and southeastern parts, where it will feel warm in the sunshine.

Tonight:

Cloud and rain, heavy at times, will erratically clear east tonight. Clear spells and showers will follow on behind across western parts. Winds easing away from northwest Scotland.

Thursday:

Rain may be slow to clear southeast England on Thursday. Elsewhere, sunny spells and showers, heavy at times, especially in the west and northwest, where it will be breezy.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Staying unsettled, with showers or longer spells of rain across northern and eastern parts, with strong winds. More settled in the south this weekend, with rain in the north Sunday.

Updated: 04:30 on Wed 16 Aug 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 21 Aug 2017 to Wednesday 30 Aug 2017:

Rain should sink southeast on Monday, followed by showers in the north and west. Largely settled conditions are likely to develop across the majority of the UK by the middle of next week as showers and rain ease away. A few days of generally settled weather is then expected, barring a few showers. Through the rest of the period, it will probably turn more changeable on the whole with spells of rain, showers and strong winds at times, the heaviest of which are expected in the northwest. However, prolonged drier and brighter periods are likely between these spells of unsettled weather. Temperatures look set to remain around or a little below the average at first, although it may become generally warmer from the middle of next week.

UK Outlook for Thursday 31 Aug 2017 to Thursday 14 Sep 2017:

For the end of August and into the first part of September, we are most likely to see changeable weather conditions dominating across the UK. However, there is a chance of some more prolonged dry and fine weather at times too. As a result, on balance there are likely to be spells of rain and strong winds at times, especially across the north and west, which will then be interspersed with several days of drier and warmer weather. Temperatures may become warm or very warm at times, especially in the south. However, they will probably remain generally close to normal for the time of year elsewhere.
