Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

13:00 on Saturday until 23:00 on Saturday

Heavy, thundery showers on Saturday afternoon and evening have the potential to bring localised flooding, hail and frequent lightning.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Skies will brighten following a band of showery rain, though rising temperatures will cause heavy showers to develop. Whilst many will miss the worst, some places could see 20-30 mm in an hour or less. The risk of this looks slightly higher across Scotland than across England or Northern Ireland.

The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/
