After our brief period of dry, near-warm weather the entirety of Scotland seems to be frequented by bothersome April Showers leaving us all pining for more sunshine.
Though the forecast does very little to lift our spirits, and things are looking to remain somewhat dull, the large collection of spring flowers shooting up around the Island have been enough to keep our sunny disposition.
Today: Sporadic heavy rain throughout the day with patches of dry and some sunny intervals in the early evening.
Monday: A dry start to the day with more heavy downpours in the afternoon and moderate winds.
Tuesday: Sunny intervals forecast for the duration, with brief light showers in the late morning. Though strong eastward winds persist.
Wednesday: Looks to be a dull and wet day, with heavy rain dominating for the entirety.
Thursday: More showers predicted with some sunny intervals in the afternoon
Friday: Things expected to remain overcast for a large part of the day, with heavy rain in the evening.
Saturday: The week due to end on a wet note with continuous rain forecast for most of the day.
Things are certainly looking dreich with large quantities of rain throughout the week, meaning we'll have to put our plans for barbecues and visits to the beach aside for the moment.
Though for those coming to visit the West Coast this week there is plenty still to enjoy in rain or shine. With Spring close to full bloom the selection of public gardens in Argyll and Bute are coming into their prime and would definately be worth a visit!
