Flooding outlook – Saturday 27 June

Flood Alerts are out across the country due to the risk of heavy isolated showers. Impacts are possible from surface water flooding and disruption to travel is possible, particularly if rain falls in built up areas prone to flooding, or on major roads.

Minor impacts are also possible if showers occur over fast responding and small watercourses.

Thunderstorms

  • Thunderstorms can cause very intense and localised torrential downpours, with potential dangerous flash flooding impacts.
  • It is very hard to predict where exactly impacts may be experienced; it can also happen suddenly, so it is important you are prepared and remain vigilant.
  • It is your responsibility to take action to protect yourselves and your property against flooding, for information on how to prepare visit, www.floodlinescotland.org.uk.
  • Be careful on the roads. Spray and sudden flooding can lead to difficult driving conditions. You should not drive through flood water.
