Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Brisk westerly winds pushing frequent showers across the area.

Today:

Rather cloudy with frequent showers spreading across area on fresh to strong southwesterly winds, which veer westerly during the afternoon. Best of limited shelter expected during morning towards Inverness, but showers merging to longer periods of rain in west. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Tonight:

Frequent evening showers, gradually dwindling from the southeast overnight, as winds ease, but still some sharp outbreaks expected come dawn in the west and north. Minimum temperature 2 °C.

Tuesday:

A cloudy morning with some light showers, but some limited brightness, chiefly towards Inverness. Periods of rain spreading from the southwest from afternoon, turning heavier from evening. Maximum temperature 9 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Mild with southerly winds. Dull with rain for Wednesday. Rather cloudy during Thursday and Friday with some patchy rain, though some drier, brighter fare also mixed in.

Updated: 02:12 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunny spells and showers. Windy in the northwest.

Today:

Sunny spells for many, but blustery showers will arrive from the west. They will be heaviest and most frequent in Northern Ireland and western Scotland. The southeast will be often cloudy though, with rain later.

Tonight:

Rain in the southeast will clear, and the daytime showers will become confined to the northwest. The wind will ease and it will be a colder night than of late.

Tuesday:

After a chilly start, many areas will see sunny spells. The showers in the north will ease, and wet and windy weather will move into the northwest later.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday will be wet and windy in the northwest, with sunnier skies in the south and east. Settled conditions will dominate towards the weekend, and it will turn very mild.

Updated: 03:09 on Mon 18 Feb 2019 GMT

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 22 Feb 2019 to Sunday 3 Mar 2019:

Friday is likely to be mild but breezy across the UK with many places dry and sunny. The southeast may see some early mist and fog, but also the best of the sunshine and very mild in places. The far northwest could see some rain and stronger winds; generally cloudier, more changeable here. This northwest-southeast split in conditions is likely to be maintained through the weekend and into next week. Any spells of rain from the northwest will tend to weaken as it moves southeast, bringing cloudier spells. Dry, settled conditions are likely to dominate through the end of February away from the far northwest; overnight frosts are possible. By early March we are more likely to see Atlantic fronts crossing the UK bringing stronger winds and rain at times.

UK Outlook for Monday 4 Mar 2019 to Monday 18 Mar 2019:

By early March there are signals for Atlantic fronts crossing the UK, bringing a mixture of wet and windy weather to many parts, but also intermittent drier spells. Snow remains possible over higher ground in the north. There are weaker signals for snow to lower levels elsewhere should a cold easterly develop; this remains a small possibility. However, milder conditions remain more likely, although occasional overnight frosts remain possible.
