Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Rather cloudy with outbreaks of rain or showers

Today:

Mostly cloudy with outbreaks of showery rain, heavy and thundery at times with a risk of localised flooding. Brighter conditions, albeit with further showers, soon develop over the Western Isles, and these edge into the western mainland during the afternoon. Maximum temperature 17 °C.

Tonight:

More persistent rain towards Inverness soon clears east through the evening to leave the rest of the night with clear spells and showers, the showers most frequent across western parts. Minimum temperature 8 °C.

Saturday:

Bright with a mix of sunshine and showers, the showers mainly in the west at first but developing more widely through the day, becoming occasionally heavy and perhaps thundery. Breezy. Maximum temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Mainly dry and bright on Sunday but cloud increasing later. Monday and Tuesday look unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain.

Updated: 04:46 on Fri 18 Aug 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain in the far north today. Sunshine and showers elsewhere.

Today:

Rain moving northeastwards across Scotland, turning heavy at times. Sunny spells and showers elsewhere, with hail and thunder possible. However, more organised rain reaching Wales later in the afternoon, continuing to spread eastwards thereafter. Windy, especially in the west.

Tonight:

Rain clearing both Scotland and parts of England during the evening, leaving a mix of clear spells and occasional showers, mostly confined to the north and west. Winds easing inland.

Saturday:

Sunshine and blustery showers for northern and western parts, though showers becoming more isolated through the day. Largely dry elsewhere with some sun, although turning cloudy in the southwest later.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain spreading northeastwards on Sunday, turning heavy over western hills. Dry and bright across southeastern parts Monday, but rain erratically moving southeastwards through the day. Staying unsettled for some Tuesday.

Updated: 01:35 on Fri 18 Aug 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 23 Aug 2017 to Friday 1 Sep 2017:

Wednesday is likely to see a mixture of sunshine and showers, with winds become quite strong in the north and east. Thursday should then see the showers become restricted to the north, with some sunshine elsewhere. Through the rest of next week, it is likely to be rather changeable in the north with spells of rain, but further south may stay drier and more settled initially, before the changeable weather in the north become more widespread. For the rest of the period, it is most likely that many areas will see spells of cloud and rain at times, interspersed with a few days of brighter, showery conditions. Temperatures look set to be around average for the time of year, although it could turn warm in the south at times.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Sep 2017 to Saturday 16 Sep 2017:

As we head into 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, probably interspersed with several days of brighter and showery 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.
