West Coast Weather - Week Commencing 20th July

Posted by Deborah Jaconelli on Jul 20, 2014 3:52:00 PM

It's been a chaotic whirlwind of ups and downs this week, as the weather failed to make up its mind with the forecast: sending us outside in light clothes with promises of sunshine only to surprise us with a downpour later.

Earlier in the week we had heard reports of potential thunderstorms coming our way, though things are looking to be a bit clearer than initially expected, giving us enough opportunity to get outside and explore.

Today: Cloudy and overcast, with occasional showers in the afternoon.

Monday: Things will remain dry, with sunny intervals throughout the afternoon

Tuesday: Another cloudy day ahead with brief patches of sunshine.

Wednesday: Looks to remain mainly unchanged, though expect some light showers in the evening.

Thursday: Today will start off dry, with frequent burst of sunshine, with rain showers dominating in the afternoon.

Friday: Intermittent sunshine and showers throughout the day.

Saturday: Predicted to be drizzly for the best part of the day.

With enough dry spells to allow for a lengthy trip outdoors -without having the worry of incapacitating heat - we recommend those coming to the area enjoy a nice bike ride along the Oban to Fort William cycle path. With Eriska being only two miles from the path, guests can enjoy the nice scenic route from Benderloch to Port Appin with relative ease and enjoy a bite to eat at the one of the few cafes and bars on route.
