BBC Weather: Freezing temperatures hit parts of the UK

The Met Office has issued yellow rain warnings for parts of Scotland next week. From 6pm on Monday until 9pm on Tuesday, one yellow rain warning covers swathes of northern and eastern Scotland – including Aberdeen and Inverness. The Met Office is warning heavy rain could bring localised flooding, with hill areas catching up to 50mm of rainfall.

The warning reads: “An area of persistent and heavy rain will spread in from the east on Monday evening, lasting much of the night before turning showery on Tuesday.

“20-30 mm will fall quite widely across the area with some hilly areas possibly catching 40-50 mm.

“Further showers through the day could bring another 10-15 mm in places. With the ground already saturated this is likely to lead to flooding in a few areas.”

Another yellow rain warning has been issued for areas in the SW Scotland, Lothian Borders region, affecting East Lothian, Edinburgh, Midlothian Council and Scottish Borders.

The warning is active from 6pm on Monday until 6am on Tuesday.

The warning reads: “An area of persistent and heavy rain will spread in from the east on Monday evening, lasting much of the night before clearing to scattered showers by morning.

“20-30mm will fall quite widely across the area with some hills possibly catching 40mm or more before it clears.

“With the ground already saturated this likely to lead to flooding in a few areas.”
