Issued For: Heavy Rain, Possible Flooding
- Active weather fronts bringing heavy rainfall
- Large totals in a short time likely to lead to flooding problems
An area of Low Pressure sitting in the Atlantic will push a series of weather fronts Eastwards across the country bringing a spell of heavy rainfall to many areas. The rain could be quite consistent across Western parts of Scotland, Western England, Wales and South-West England bringing a risk of flooding.
Orange Zone: Persistent heavy rainfall is likely to lead to localised flooding problems. Rainfall totals of 20-30mm, locally 40mm in the space of a few hours is expected to cause disruption.
Yellow Zone: Rainfall is unlikely to be as persistent or as heavy in these areas, however minor flooding is a possibility in areas previously flooded in the last month or so. Rainfall totals ranging between 15-20mm, locally 25mm could cause disruption due to standing water.
Further rainfall is expected during the next week as low pressure systems continue to track closer to the UK.
