Gales are expected to affect parts of eastern England at times during Sunday and Monday. Gusts between 55 and 65 mph seem likely to the east of hills, and in excess of 70 mph over hill tops. The public should be aware of the possibility of minor disruption, in particular to road travel.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An area of low pressure near Iceland will bring strengthening winds to many areas. Winds are likely to be particularly gusty from Sunday, continuing into much of Monday. Given the potential for very strong gusts to the lee of high ground as well as over hills, travelling conditions may be difficult.

Spells of persistent, and at times heavy, rain will affect parts of northern and northwest England on Monday and Tuesday. This rain will fall onto already saturated ground and the public should be aware of the possibility of some minor flooding, affecting for example some road networks.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A mild, moist west to southwesterly airstream will bring further spells of heavy, persistent rain across parts of northern England during Monday and Tuesday. The heaviest rainfall is likely to be over the higher ground of Cumbria and Pennine Yorkshire, with widely around 30-50 mm and up to 80 mm in the very wettest spots. This may cause some minor disruption due to either river or surface water flooding,

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 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.

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.

Heavy rain will affect North Wales on Tuesday. Given high river levels from recent heavy rain, the public should be aware of the risk of further flooding, for example affecting some roads.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A mild, moist west to southwesterly airstream will bring further rainfall, turning heavier and more persistent as a front comes through on Tuesday, with 30-50 mm or so. In most areas this should cause no more than some rather tricky driving conditions, but rivers do seem likely to rise again and bring the risk of flooding.
