Weather Summary

Headline:

Mainly dry and bright.

Today:

A bright morning with some good spells of sunshine around. Shetland remains dry and bright through this afternoon but increasing cloud is expected to bring patchy mainly light rain to Orkney later. Freshening southeasterly winds. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Tonight:

Cloudy through the evening with a few spots of rain then dry through the early hours with clear spells developing. Breezy with occasionally strong southeasterly winds. Minimum Temperature 9C.

Saturday:

Rather cloudy across southern Shetland and at times across eastern Orkney, otherwise a bright day with some sunny spells. Breezy though with strong southeasterly winds. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Generally rather cloudy with outbreaks of mostly light rain or drizzle. Best of any bright or sunny spells likely on Sunday morning. The mainly southeasterly breeze will be occasionally strong.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Sep 2017 to Thursday 5 Oct 2017:

As we head through the end of September, there will be a west/east split in the weather. The west is likely to be cloudier with outbreaks of rain, perhaps heavy at times. In contrast, the east will be drier and brighter, but with generally light winds for all parts, there could be some chilly nights with mist and fog forming under any clearer skies. Towards the start of October, this split will continue but it is likely to turn windier and increasingly unsettled in the west, with a risk of gales or severe gales, particularly in the northwest. These unsettled conditions will erratically spread eastwards, but some central and eastern areas may perhaps stay dry throughout. Temperatures will generally be above normal, perhaps warm across central and eastern areas.

UK Outlook for Friday 6 Oct 2017 to Friday 20 Oct 2017:

More unsettled weather will perhaps be more widely established by the end of the first week in October, most especially in the north and west. This will bring an increased likelihood of stronger winds and heavier rain across many areas. By mid October, confidence in the forecast reduces, however it may remain generally unsettled with occasional drier and brighter spells. On the whole, temperatures will be close to or slightly warmer than normal, but in any settled spells there could be chilly nights, with an increased risk of mist, fog and frost, especially in the north.
