Highlands & Eilean Siar weather forecast

Headline:

Showers and some brighter spells for today.

Today:

Fresh to strong west to southwest winds will sweep showers across the area, these quite frequent and occasionally heavy, particularly in the west, bringing some risk of thunderstorms. However brighter spells will lift the temperatures to the seasonal average. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Tonight:

Rather cloudy with occasional showers tonight, with outbreaks more frequent across the west, but also tending to dwindle towards dawn. Brisk west to southwest winds. Minimum temperature 8 °C.

Sunday:

A rather cloudy day with best of the limited brightness expected towards Inverness. Occasional showers, perhaps merging to longer periods of light to moderate rain at times. Fresh westerly winds. Maximum temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Fair start for Monday, but rain, strengthening winds spreading from west later. Details difficult thereafter, but mostly unsettled with periods of rain or showers, with east seeing best of shelter.

UK long range weather forecast

Sunshine and showers can be expected Wednesday as rain generally clears away from the southeast, while heavier and possibly thundery showers may be expected in the northwest. Winds moderate to fresh, and temperatures trending slightly above average. Unsettled weather continues for many, with showers affecting northern areas and likely to spread southwards. Temperatures turning normal or cool, and becoming windier with gales possible in places. Confidence remains low throughout the rest of this period. High pressure may develop across the UK, with likely occasional frontal systems bringing periods of rain. However, towards the end of the period, deep lower pressure may be expected, with temperatures generally returning to above normal, however, cooler nights make way for potential mist and fog.

Updated:

We may expect to see lower pressure dominating through the rest of October; however, confidence remains low through this period. A lower pressure regime is likely to bring periods of rain across the UK, however some drier spells and potential mist and fog can be expected too, most likely at the beginning of the period. Temperatures likely to remain above normal throughout.
