Cloudy with outbreaks of rain on Tuesday.
Cloud and outbreaks of rain will continue to spread across all parts this morning with some heavier spells in the south, then turning patchier later. Becoming drier later across Lewis and Harris. Feeling cool in the fresh easterly breeze. Maximum Temperature 15C.
Rain will become confined across Sutherland and Caithness this evening with drier conditions and some clear spells elsewhere. Breezy across the north. Minimum Temperature 8C.
Any remaining rain in north will clear through the morning with dry conditions following. Bright or sunny spells near coasts, but more cloudy inland with the odd shower. Cooler east. Maximum Temperature 18C.
Thursday and Friday will be dry bright in west, but cloudier with some patchy rain elsewhere. A band of rain will arrive later on Saturday. Feeling cool with freshening winds.
We will see changeable weather over the weekend, with cloud and outbreaks of rain, along with heavy showers in the north. There will be some sunshine too, but it will be rather breezy. The following week will stay changeable with showers or longer spells of rain. There will also be some drier and brighter spells, which will be most likely in the south and east. In the northwest, showers are likely to be heavier, perhaps bringing a risk of thunder at times. It will sometimes be windy, especially in the north and west where there will be a risk of local gales at times. Temperatures are expected to stay near the seasonal average throughout, occasionally warm in the east, but locally rather cool in the west.
The changeable weather is likely to continue in the north at first, bringing further showers or longer spells of rain with only brief bright or sunny spells in between. However, drier and warmer spells are likely to become more prevalent in the south and these may spread further north as we head into the second half of the month. These would bring more in the way of sunshine and higher temperatures, and there could be some very warm spells. However, an increase in temperatures would pose the threat of some thundery showers.
