Regional Forecast for Highlands & Eilean Siar

Headline:

Patchy rain initially in south, but mostly dry and sunny.

Today:

Lewis, Sutherland, Caithness, Ross and Cromarty generally dry and occasionally bright with light winds. Rather cloudy this morning across south, with some patchy rain, though this should hold south of Inverness with drier, brighter conditions feeding southwards for the afternoon. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Tonight:

Dry with occasional clear spells across the mainland, combining with light winds to bring chilly start to the week for glens. Isles cloudier with a chance of some light showers. Minimum temperature 8 °C.

Monday:

Most staying dry with light winds and temperatures around seasonal averages. However it will be a rather cloudy day with best of limited brighter spells expected later in the day. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Tuesday starting dry, perhaps bright, but cloud, rain gradually spreading from west as winds freshen. Wednesday brings sunshine and light showers. Thursday fair initially, but rain spreading from Atlantic later.

Updated: 03:27 on Sun 19 Aug 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain clearing east. Staying mostly cloudy.

Today:

Heavy rain will clear northern England and southern and eastern Scotland through the morning. A cloudy day for many, with a few light showers. However, some sunshine will develop during the afternoon, sunniest across northwest Scotland. Feeling warm and humid.

Tonight:

Cloudy for many with a few spots of drizzle. Low cloud and hill fog in places too. A mild night, but turning cool under clearer skies across northern Scotland.

Monday:

Mostly cloudy, but some bright or sunny breaks developing. Again, little drizzle or a few light showers are possible. Staying humid and feeling very warm in the south.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Humid for most parts and feeling very warm in any sunshine, with warm nights too. Rain in the northwest will slowly move southeastward Wednesday and Thursday, with fresher conditions following.

Updated: 01:53 on Sun 19 Aug 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 24 Aug 2018 to Sunday 2 Sep 2018:

On Friday and Saturday many places will have sunshine and showers. These showers heavy at times and with a risk of hail and thunder, particularly in the north, with the best of the sunnier spells in the southeast. It will be windy at times, and some more persistent rain may reach northwestern parts on Saturday. Through the rest of the weekend and into the following week the northwest will have showers or longer spells of rain at times, with drier and brighter conditions generally in the southeast, although even here some bands of rain may move through. This weather pattern is quite likely to continue through the rest of the period. Temperatures starting rather cool, but recovering to around normal, and perhaps warm at times in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Monday 3 Sep 2018 to Monday 17 Sep 2018:

During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change slowly. Areas of high pressure and associated settled weather will probably increasingly dominate, with some longer dry spells, particularly for northwestern areas compared to much of August. However there are also likely to be some more changeable weather at times in the north and northwest with outbreaks of rain and local gales, with these conditions perhaps extending southeastwards at times. Temperatures by day are likely to be generally warmer than average, especially for the southeastern half of the UK but generally nearer normal further northwest, and there will be an increasing chance of chillier nights anywhere, as would be expected during September.
