    Updated 21 December at 11:51 Active


    Rain will continue to affect northwest Scotland on Sunday. The rain will be persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. Clearer showery weather will reach the Northwest Highlands on Sunday evening, the more persistent rain clearing southwards from Argyll by Monday morning.

    The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, particularly on the road network, where there will be a lot of surface water and spray. This updates the warning issued on Saturday.
