Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

15:45 on Thursday until 03:00 on Friday

The warning has been updated to extend it further south and west into South Wales, Devon and Somerset. Areas of rain, locally thundery, are developing across the warning area and will continue during Thursday evening and overnight. The rain will be heavy at times and may lead to some localised disruption. Lightning will be an additional hazard and could also cause some minor disruption.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

The warning has been extended to cater for heavy showers developing across Devon. These will extend north and east into Somerset and South Wales over the next few hours. Heavy rain may lead to localised rainfall accumulations of 20-30 mm in 1-2 hours, with some places perhaps seeing 40-60 mm in 3-6 hours. This may cause some travel disruption during rush hour this evening. The threat of heavy rain will clear eastwards later in the night, clearing western parts of the warning area by around midnight.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

14:00 on Saturday until 08:00 on Sunday

Outbreaks of rain will develop over central UK through the course of Saturday, and by the evening are likely to be heavy at times. This rain is likely to be prolonged over many areas overnight into Sunday morning, gradually becoming lighter and dying out later on Sunday. Please be aware of the risk of local disruption to transport and outdoor activities.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A frontal zone associated with very warm and moist air over southern UK early Saturday will ease northwards during Saturday, and become slow moving over central areas of England and Wales later Saturday, persisting overnight, before slowly easing away to the east during the course of Sunday. Rainfall will be heavy at times, and locally prolonged. Rainfall totals are likely to be in the range of 20-40 mm, but 50-75 mm is possible in some areas.
