Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

23:15 on Saturday until 08:00 on Sunday

Rain will become persistent and locally heavy during Saturday night, clearing eastwards early on Sunday morning. Please be aware of the risk of surface water flooding, which could cause local disruption to transport and outdoor activities.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A frontal zone will become slow moving across more northern parts of England and Wales during Saturday night, with areas of persistent and at times heavy rain developing. Rainfall totals will be very variable, but some places could have as much as 30-40 mm of rain during this period.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

10:00 on Saturday until 20:00 on Saturday

Thundery showers are expected to become more widespread later this morning and during Saturday afternoon, before easing from the southwest into the evening. Some torrential downpours are possible. Please be aware of the risk of surface water flooding, including local disruption to transport and outdoor activities. This warning has been updated to focus the zone at risk through today, whilst a separate warning will cover the potential for further heavy rain into Sunday, this time for more northern parts of England and Wales.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A frontal zone associated with very warm and moist air will continue to move northwards across England and Wales during Saturday, with an increasing risk of thunderstorms developing and tracking northeastwards across the warning area. There still remains some uncertainty in where the heaviest and most prolonged thundery downpours will occur, with some places in the warning area having only small amounts of rain, However, there is a risk of some torrential downpours developing which could produce around 30 mm of rain within an hour and very locally 50 mm within 2-3 hours, the most likely zone for these being from Dorset and Hampshire to Lincolnshire.
