Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 12:00 on Friday until 23:55 on Saturday

Rain will be persistent and heavy at times through much of Friday and Saturday. The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and some travel disruption.

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. Rainfall totals of 50-75 mm are expected widely, with over 100 mm in the wettest spots in the warning area. As the very mild air is drawn in on the strong southwesterly airstream, snowmelt will add to the flooding risk. There remains some doubt about the extent and location of the heaviest rain so this alert will be updated in the coming days as the picture becomes clearer.

The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/warnings/
