Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

11:15 on Saturday until 23:59 on Saturday

Rain, heavy at times will continue to affect much of central and southwestern Scotland today. Some low-level river flooding impacts are expected, especially in Dumfries and Galloway, while excess surface water will lead to localised flooding in prone areas. Clearer, drier conditions will gradually extend from the northwest reaching most areas by around midnight. Please be aware of the likelihood of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions. This is an update to the warning issued on Friday, removing the northwest of Scotland where the worst of the rain has now passed, while extending it further east towards the western Borders and the southern Grampians.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An Atlantic frontal system will be slow moving over Scotland through Saturday, before clearing east overnight. Moist air and strong flow will combine to produce some large rainfall amounts, especially over high ground. Another 20 to 40 mm is expected quite widely within the warning area, with over 60mm possible over the hills of the Southern Uplands and southern Highlands. Rain will be accompanied by strong southerly winds, so leaf fall may reduce road drainage exacerbating the risk of flooding.
