    Forecasters Warning

    Heavy and Persistent Rain

    Affecting: West and northwest Scotland along with northwest England and parts of northern and western Ireland

    Valid: 09:00 Friday 14th August - 22:00 Saturday 15th August 2009

    This is a Weather Watch issued by Metcheck at 23:22 on Wednesday 12th August 2009.

    A deepening Atlantic low is set stall close to northwest Scotland during Friday and Saturday, and its associated weather fronts will subsequently become slow moving over north-western Britain and Ireland.

    With warm and moist air feeding in off the Atlantic, outbreaks of rain are likely to become heavy and persistent across western Scotland and northwest England as well as over northern and western parts of Ireland during Friday, before continuing for much of the following 36 hours or so.

    The above areas are at risk of seeing over 50mm (2 inches) of rain during the course of Friday and Saturday - with up to 90mm of rainfall possible in some places.

    This will bring the risk of localised flooding as well as making travelling conditions hazardous.

    This Weather Watch will be updated later tomorrow, Thursday 13th August 2009.

    Issued by: Paul Barber for Metcheck

    will update tomorrow and add regular updates through the weekend.
