Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

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

Outbreaks of rain spreading southeast across Scotland on Sunday will turn heavier across the western Central Belt and Southwest Scotland during the afternoon and evening. The rain will continue overnight and into Monday morning before clearing southwards by early 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 on Sunday, introducing mild rain-bearing southwesterly winds. The heaviest rain will be in the west where 20-40 mm is likely within a 24-hour period and perhaps 60 mm over some hilly areas.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 12:10 on Sunday until 06:00 on Monday

Rain will continue to affect northwest Scotland on Sunday. The rain will be persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. Clearer showery weather will reach the Northwest Highlands on Sunday evening, the more persistent rain clearing southwards from Argyll by Monday morning. 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. This updates the warning issued on Saturday.

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 within a 24-hour period and perhaps 80 mm or more over some hilly areas. Snow-melt will add to these totals, increasing the risk of flooding.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 00:10 on Tuesday until 18:00 on Tuesday

Persistent rain is likely to return southwestern Scotland for much of Tuesday. With this rain falling onto already saturated ground, the public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to localised flooding.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

After a drier interlude later on Monday, a waving frontal zone will push back northwards to bring further rain to southwest Scotland early on Tuesday, eventually clearing again during the evening. Given recent wet conditions, there is a further risk of minor flooding from rivers or surface water.
