A band of squally rain is expected to develop late on Saturday morning, eventually approaching NW Ireland and W Scotland during the afternoon, perhaps producing some sporadic lightning over the Atlantic but is expected to weaken (lightning-wise) as it moves inland. As such, have tentatively introduced a low-end SLGT, but the main focus will be offshore to the west of these areas. Nonetheless, damaging gusts of 70-80mph will be possible with this feature as it moves into the Outer Hebrides in particular. CAPE will be rather weak by landfall, and profiles rather saturated despite strong shear, and so lightning activity is a little questionable.
