Further heavy rain expected

The Met Office is warning of a spell of persistent rain, heavy at times, which is expect to affect parts of South Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway later today (Monday) onwards into the night.

Whilst this rain will neither be as heavy nor as prolonged as recent rain, please be aware that in view of the saturated nature of the ground and high river levels further localised flooding and disruption to transport is possible.

This front will bring with it a few hours’ worth of rain, heavy at times, to the area covered by the warning leading to rainfall totals of 10-15 mm, perhaps locally 20-25 mm.
