Warning details for UK
Persistent, occasionally heavy rain is expected on Friday and Saturday. Some disruption, mainly to travel, is possible.
What to expect
- Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
- Where flooding occurs, there is a chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services
- There is a small chance that some communities will become cut off by flooded roads
- There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
- There is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses
Reason for update
Update to delay onset of heavy rain and to move the area further north.
Rain will affect many parts of Scotland on Friday and Saturday, this heaviest and most persistent across western parts of the country highlighted by the warning area. Rainfall amounts across the two days are likely to be 30-50 mm in low lying areas, with 50-100 mm over higher ground. The wettest conditions are expected to be across the West Highlands where 100-150 mm is possible, perhaps in excess of this in a few isolated sites. This will come after rain (heavy at times) on preceding days, hence an increased risk of seeing some disruption or other impacts.
