West Coast Weather - Week Commencing 13th July

Posted by Bertie Badger on Jul 13, 2014 2:08:00 PM

It's been a picturesque week with plenty of sunshine adorning the West Coast and bringing out the features that make this part of Scotland truly unique. Though most of the locals are adorning a slight redish-tint to their skin; having been caught out by the heat!

But unfortunately our streak of good luck ran a little low with the weather taking a turn for the worst yesterday and ending the week on a downpour.

Today: A cloudy start to the day, with things brightening up later in the afternoon.

Monday: Light sporadic showers of rain expected in the morning getting more consistent and heavier as the day progresses

Tuesday: Things look to remain dry throughout, with some sunny intervals in the afternoon

Wednesday: Following a dry morning, periodic light rain showers will make an appearance in the afternoon with brief patches of sunshine.

Thursday: White cloud to dominate, with temperatures reaching their high teens

Friday: Heavy rain showers and burst of sunshine predicted for most of the day

Saturday: Looks to remain unchanged, with the week ending on a bit of wet note.

For those coming to visit the West Coast this week, we advise proper planning to ensure you make the most of the dry weather. For those looking for activities to keep them out the rain, we would recommend a trip to Cruachan Power Station, located on the shores of Loch Awe. As well as a being an engineering marvel, the hollow mountain homes a cavern in its centre which claims to be large enough to fit the Tower of London!
