Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

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

Showers or longer spells of rain will affect much of southern and western Scotland during Sunday and into Sunday night. The rain will be accompanied by gale force west to southwesterly winds, especially during Sunday afternoon, with gusts of 45-55 mph quite widely, perhaps 60-65 mph over exposed coasts and bridges. Please be aware of some difficult driving conditions due to standing water and spray, and localised surface water flooding.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure will become slow moving over the far north of Scotland on Sunday, bringing a strong west to southwesterly airstream to much of the country. Several frontal systems and troughs within this airstream will bring frequent showers and even longer spells of rain. A further 15-25 mm is expected quite widely within the warning area, with perhaps 30-40 mm over higher ground in the west. With the ground still saturated after the recent wet weather, these amounts of rain will be enough to cause some surface water flooding. Spray will be an added hazard especially during Sunday afternoon, when it will be blown by the gale force winds.

Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

Valid from 00:05 on Sunday until 09:00 on Sunday

Icy stretches are expected to form on untreated surfaces overnight into Sunday morning. Further showers are also expected in the west, these turning to snow on higher ground. Please be aware of these wintry hazards and the potential for some difficult driving conditions.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A band of rain will clear east into the North Sea during Saturday evening. Clearing skies will allow temperatures to fall with ice readily forming on untreated surfaces overnight into Sunday morning. Some showers are also expected, and could give a few cm mainly above 300 m, and adding to the ice risk. Temperatures will then start to recover from the southwest early on Sunday morning as cloud thickens and winds increase.

Wind warning of amber

Amber warning of wind

Be prepared

Valid from 03:00 on Monday until 18:00 on Monday

An area of very strong winds is likely to extend east across southwest England and parts of central southern England on Monday morning. Gusts of 60-70 mph are likely widely, with 80 mph gusts in exposed coastal areas, particularly Cornwall and North Devon. Some very large waves are also likely to affect many coasts, in particular north coasts of Cornwall and Devon. Winds should gradually ease through the afternoon and evening. Please be prepared for disruption to travel as well as possible damage to trees and structures and interruption of power supplies.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure is expected to move eastwards across the UK on Monday with a swathe of very strong winds around its southern flank, which will affect parts of southern Britain. The winds are likely to be very gusty at times, particularly in association with heavy showers running across these areas. There remains some uncertainty in northward and eastward extent of the damaging winds as well as the peak strengths and so this warning will be kept under review.

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 03:00 on Monday until 18:00 on Monday

An area of very strong winds are expected to extend east across much of southern England and parts of south Wales on Monday morning. Gusts of 60-70 mph are likely quite widely, with 80 mph gusts likely in exposed coastal areas, particularly Cornwall. Some very large waves are also likely to affect many coasts, in particular the north coasts of Cornwall and Devon. Winds should gradually ease through the afternoon and evening. Please be aware of the potential for disruption to travel as well as possible damage to trees and structures and interruption of power supplies. This is a further update to extend the warning to cover most other counties of southern England.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure is expected to move eastwards across the UK on Monday with a swathe of very strong winds around its southern flank, which will cross much of southern England and parts of south Wales. The winds are likely to be very gusty at times, particularly in association with heavy showers running across these areas. There remains some uncertainty in northward extent of the damaging winds as well as the peak strengths and so this warning will be kept under review.
