Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 22:00 on Monday until 10:00 on Tuesday

Showers and some longer spells of heavy rain will affect southwest Scotland on Monday evening and overnight before clearing later on Tuesday morning. On some high level roads, mainly above 300-400 m, the rain may turn to wet snow before clearing, bringing some slushy accumulations. Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions, and the potential for some localised flooding.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An occluded front will become slow moving across southwest Scotland on Monday night and Tuesday morning, bringing bands of showers and longer spells of heavy rain. Rainfall accumulations of 15-25 mm are likely, with isolated totals of 30-40 mm possible on high ground in the west. The front will move south later on Tuesday morning with rain and hill snow clearing.
