Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 16:00 on Thursday until 02:00 on Friday

Severe gales will affect parts of western and northern Scotland for a time later on Thursday and overnight. Gusts to between 60 and 70 mph may affect the Western Isles and perhaps the northwest corner of the mainland, while 50 to 60 mph gusts are more likely in, for example, the Northern Isles. The public should be aware of the possibility of minor disruption, for example to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A deep area of low pressure will swing a swathe of strong winds (and heavy rain) towards northwest Scotland this afternoon, winds peaking this evening, before starting to ease across the Northern Isles just after midnight. Although such wind speeds are not unusual across these areas of Scotland, the contrast with the recent quiet weather means that a few minor impacts may occur.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 15:00 on Friday until 09:00 on Saturday

A band of heavy rain will affect parts of the southern half of Scotland, the southeast corner of Northern Ireland, and later parts of northern England, north and west Wales, before clearing away to the southeast during Saturday morning. The exact location of the heaviest rain remains somewhat uncertain, with subsequent revisions to the area quite likely. The public should be aware of the potential for some localised impacts to travel due to surface water flooding.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A slow moving active cold front will be reinforced as a shallow wave runs northeastwards overnight Friday into Saturday. This will lead to some heavy and persistent rainfall, with 20 to 40 mm possibly quite widely across the warning area, while a few locations may see in excess of 60 mm, much of this falling within a few hours Despite the recent dry conditions, this may lead to surface water flooding.
