Rain warning of amber

Amber warning of rain

Be prepared

Valid from 06:00 on Sunday until 23:50 on Monday

Prolonged and heavy rainfall is expected at times during Sunday and Monday, eventually clearing away southeastwards on Monday night. The rain is likely to be heaviest across Lochaber and through the Great Glen. The public should be prepared for disruption due to flooding.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A moist and very strong southwesterly flow is expected to develop early on Sunday, with this lasting through much of Monday. A frontal system aligned with this flow is expected to bring periods of heavy rainfall to northwestern parts of Scotland. Rainfall totals in excess of 100 mm are likely, with 200 mm or more possible locally in the mountains.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 00:10 on Sunday until 03:00 on Tuesday

A frontal system will become slow moving across northwestern parts of Scotland during the early part of Sunday and through Monday, finally clearing southeastwards in the early hours of Tuesday. Heavy persistent rainfall is likely across many parts of the warning area in association with this feature. Largest rainfall totals are likely to be across Lochaber and through the Great Glen (please see separate Amber Warning). The public should be aware that disruption is likely due to flooding. An additional hazard will be very strong southwesterly winds, with gales or perhaps severe gales at times, particularly during the first part of Sunday. This warning is an update to that that first issued on Friday to extend the area somewhat further southeast to include northern parts of Argyll and the northwestern Trossachs. and to suggest a likelihood of medium impacts in the risk matrix.
