Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of rain

    1200 on Tue 7 July
    2000 on Tue 7 July
    Updated 7 July at 11:09 Active


    Scattered heavy showers are expected to develop across northern parts of Scotland during Tuesday afternoon. Some of these will become heavy and thundery, especially across the northeast and perhaps across Easter Ross and Inverness. The showers will be slow-moving and as a result there is the potential for large rainfall accumulations here in a short period of time.

    Whilst many places could miss the showers the public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and difficult driving conditions in any surface water.This is an update to the warning issued yesterday.

A list of all UK Warnings can be found on our More UK Weather page.

Weather Warnings Key
