Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

05:00 on Saturday until 22:00 on Saturday

Scattered showers or outbreaks of rain are expected to spread north during Saturday morning, then lasting into the evening. Between the showers and rain some brighter spells with hazy sunshine are expected. These showers may be heavy with the potential for lightning and small hail. Please be aware of the potential for localised disruption to travel and outdoor activities.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Scattered showers or outbreaks of rain are expected to run northwards across Wales and western parts of England from Saturday morning onwards. There will also be some brighter spells and hazy sunshine and it is possible that some places here may escape the showers or rain and remain dry. Uncertainty in the development of these showers and rain is higher than average and some areas may see only small amounts of rain. Showers within this warning area are not expected to be as intense as those that may develop in the other warning area further east on Saturday covering parts of the Midlands and southern Pennines.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

12:00 on Saturday until 20:00 on Saturday

Whilst the majority of places within this warning area will see a dry and very warm Saturday with a good deal of hazy sunshine there is a very low likelihood of isolated intense thunderstorms developing during the afternoon and evening. Please be aware that if these occur they are likely to be associated with torrential downpours as well as frequent lightning and hail leading to disruption to travel, outdoor activities and potentially flooding or temporary power disruption. Some very localised strong and gusty winds are also possible.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

In the warm airmass over the UK there is the potential for thunderstorms to develop thanks to high temperatures triggering convection during Saturday. Many places are expected to remain dry and the development of the thunderstorms is by no means certain and they may not form at all. However, if storms do develop the atmospheric conditions are there for the showers to generate frequent lightning, torrential downpours, large hail of up to 20 mm and gusty winds. The development of these showers is likely to remain uncertain even up to very short lead times and this warning is likely to be updated as confidence increases.
