Chief Forecaster's assessment

Skies will brighten following a band of showery rain, though rising temperatures will cause heavy showers to develop. Whilst many will miss the worst, some places could see 20-30 mm in an hour or less. The risk of this looks slightly higher across Scotland than across England or Northern Ireland.

A band of heavy rain will spread north across Scotland on Saturday. The rain will be most persistent in the northwest, where 30-40mm is likely quite widely. Where the heaviest downpours occur, there could be more than 60mm locally.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Torrential rain and thunderstorms could give as much as 30mm, possibly 40mm in an hour in places. It is not certain where flooding impacts may occur, but it is likely to be in a few places rather than across the whole warning area. Lightning strikes are also possible, which bring a chance of power cuts.
