Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 06:00 on Tuesday until 15:00 on Tuesday

Heavy rain will spread from the south on Monday night to affect Northern Ireland on Tuesday morning. This will bring some difficult travelling conditions for the morning commute, with standing water and spray likely to affect many roads. The public should be aware of the risk of some localised flooding and disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A complex low pressure area will push fronts and bands of rain northwards across Northern Ireland on Tuesday. 15-30 mm will fall quite widely within a 6 to 9 hour period, with as much as 50 mm possible over high ground facing the strengthening easterly winds, such as the Mourne Mountains and Antrim Hills. The more persistent rain will clear from the south by the early afternoon, although showers may break out later.

Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

Valid from 09:00 on Tuesday until 19:00 on Tuesday

Southwesterly winds will gust to over 50 mph at times in parts of southern England and south Wales, and to 60 mph in some exposed coastal sites. The public should be aware that these gusts may cause minor damage to trees, and make travel tricky for the likes of towing vehicles.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A rather deep and complex area of low pressure will bring windy conditions widely on Tuesday, but these winds will be strongest near the south coast in the morning, then more generally across south west England and parts of South Wales later in the day. Such winds would be quite normal in winter but rather less so (though not exceptional) in May, and with trees well into leaf now, and some extra holiday traffic around, some minor impacts are likely.
