Rain warning of amber

Amber warning of rain

Be prepared

Valid from 18:00 on Friday until 06:00 on Sunday

Rain will be persistent and heavy at times during the rest of Friday and Saturday, lasting into Sunday morning. Whilst the wettest conditions will be over the west Highlands, the rain will feed rivers draining into and out of Loch Ness, bringing a risk of property and road flooding in the area. The public should be prepared for this risk, along with that of travel disruption, especially on Saturday and into Sunday morning.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A slow-moving Atlantic front will bring a prolonged spell of wet weather to much of west and northwest Scotland within a very mild, moist southwesterly flow. Two-day rainfall totals of 50-100 mm are expected widely, with perhaps 150-200 mm in the wettest spots in the West Highlands. As the very mild air is drawn in on the strong southwesterly airstream, snow-melt will add to the flooding risk.

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 18:00 on Friday until 06:00 on Sunday

Rain will be persistent and heavy at times during the rest of Friday and Saturday, lasting into Sunday morning. The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding with a higher risk within the amber area due to high river levels and additional snow melt. Some travel disruption is likely, especially on Saturday and into Sunday morning.
