An area of low pressure will move across northern parts of the UK today, with showers forming as temperatures rise. The showers will become slow-moving due to the light winds. The potential for heavy rainfall decreases again this evening as temperatures fall and winds begin to pick up again.

Showers will turn heavy and possibly thundery across southern and some central parts of Scotland this afternoon. Although some areas will avoid the showers completely, other locations could see rainfall accumulations 10 to 15 mm in an hour or less, and 20 to 30 mm in just a few hours.The public should be aware that some disruption due to surface water flooding is possible. The heavier showers will die away again this evening.
