Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 06:00 on Sunday until 18:00 on Monday

Gales are expected to affect parts of southeast Scotland and northeast England at times during Sunday and Monday. Gusts between 55 and 65 mph seem likely over and to the east of hills. The public should be aware of the possibility of minor disruption, in particular to road travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure near Iceland will bring strengthening winds to many areas. Winds are likely to be particularly gusty over northeastern parts of the UK from Sunday morning, continuing into much of Monday. Given the potential for very strong gusts to the lee of high ground as well as over hills, travelling conditions may be difficult.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 03:00 on Sunday until 15:00 on Monday

Outbreaks of rain reaching northwest Scotland in the early hours of Sunday will spread southeast across the country during the day. The rain will become persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. The heaviest rain looks like becoming more confined to southwest Scotland later on Sunday before potentially moving north again on Monday morning, finally clearing on Monday afternoon. The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, particularly on the road network, where there will be a lot of surface water and spray.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A complex series of fronts will affect Scotland from early on Sunday, introducing mild rain-bearing southwesterly winds. The heaviest rain will be in the west where 30-50 mm is likely in a 36-hour period and perhaps as much as 80 mm over some hilly areas. Snow-melt in the West Highlands will add to these totals. There is some uncertainty in the focus of the wettest weather especially on Monday, and as a result this alert is likely to be updated on subsequent days.
