"Ireland, along with the north and especially northwest of the UK, will see some heavy rain at times, along with gales, even severe gales in exposed places. “It stays mild to the southeast of all of that, mostly dry and bright with sunny spells, although even here, it'll be windy. The rain will try to move southeast during Wednesday, but it'll be a struggle, and it will fizzle out quite quickly the closer to the southeast that it gets.” WXcharts show a band of heavy rain moving across western areas of the UK overnight. The Met Office has issued five weather warnings for wind and rain over the next 24 hours, with the North West and Scotland likely to see the worst of the conditions. They include two “danger to life” amber alerts for central and eastern areas of Scotland, with the Met Office warning homes and businesses are likely to be flooded. NetWeather TV forecaster Paul Michealwaite said “pulses of heavier more persistent rain” will become more prominent from Monday evening, before another wet-weather front closes in from the Atlantic. He said: “Late Monday and into the start of Tuesday, the next Atlantic system will approach, with rain and strong winds arriving in from the west.
The Met Office has issued an amber warning across southwestern parts of Scotland and just north of Glasgow, from 12 pm on Tuesday. It warns: “A spell of persistent and often heavy rain will affect much of Scotland during Tuesday and Wednesday. Rainfall accumulations of 40 to 60 mm are expected quite widely across the warning area with a few places possibly seeing 80-120mm in a 24 to 36 hour period." A yellow alert, warning of gusts of up to 70mph, is in force across the whole of Scotland, large areas of the north of England and Northern Ireland from 2 am on Tuesday. Two additional yellow rain alerts, warning of up to 60mm of rainfall, are in place across the far northwest of England and the northeastern coast of Northern Ireland from 11 am on Tuesday.
