Yellow Warning of Rain Valid from 00:05 until 22:00 0n Sat, 25th Feb 2017

The Met Office have issued a Yellow Warning of Rain Valid from 00:05 on Sat, 25th Feb 2017 until 22:00 on Sat, 25th Feb 2017

Heavy and persistent rain is expected to affect high ground of northern England throughout Saturday. Please be aware of the possibility of localised flooding and minor travel disruption.

A large area of rain is expected to push into the northwest of the UK later Friday, and slowly clear southeastwards through Saturday. A combination of mild, moist air and strong southwesterly winds will lead to rainfall being especially heavy and persistent over higher ground. 30-50 mm is likely quite widely with 70 mm over the most exposed sites.

This warning has been updated to slightly reduce rainfall totals and bring forward the end time to late Saturday evening.
