Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 00:10 on Sunday until 23:50 on Monday

A frontal system is expected to become slow moving across northwestern parts of Scotland during the early part of Sunday and through Monday. Heavy rainfall is likely across many parts of the warning area in association with this feature. An additional hazard will be very strong southwesterly winds, with gales or severe gales at times, particularly during the first part of Sunday. The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A moist and very strong southwesterly flow is expected to develop early on Sunday, with this lasting through much of Monday. A frontal system aligned with this flow is expected to bring periods of heavy rainfall to northwestern parts of Scotland. Rainfall totals in excess of 100 mm are likely, with as much as 150 mm in places. Gales or severe gales are also likely with gusts of 70 mph possible, especially in exposure. Some disruption can be expected due to surface water flooding, with large waves affecting some coastal areas, bringing the risk of over topping of flood defences.
