    A developing Atlantic depression is expected track across Ireland and Scotland during Sunday. This system, which contains the remnants of ex-hurricane Lisa will bring a spell of very wet and very windy weather to many parts of the UK during Sunday and into Monday.

    Heavy rainfall is expected to sweep across from the southwest during Sunday, bringing localised falls of up to 50mm (2 inches), which may cause some localised flooding

    The current wet and windy weather will continue during Sunday night, with gales developing in many areas, especially over coasts and hills, and perhaps severe gales by the end of the night and through Monday in northern parts of Britain. Gusts could reach as high as 70MPH in the north and east of Scotland during Monday.

    With trees still in full leaf, damage and debris is possible from branches or trees coming down. Please take extra care if you have to make a journey.

    In addition, the current very heavy rainfall over Wales is expected to spread to northwest England and souther Scotland during the night, before a band of heavy rain moves southeast across England during Monday.

    Driving conditions will be dangerous, so extra care is strongly advised, and localised flooding may be an added problem.

    Confidence Level: 80%
