The Met Office has issued a warning of heavy rain across the majority of the weekend.Advertisement
After a settled Friday, the weather could start at midday on Saturday and continue through until late Sunday night, although the current severity of the conditions is unknown.
This has the potential to disrupt a number of events including Community Celebration Day and the EDL protests.
The Met Office chief forecaster said: “A mild and moist westerly flow from the Atlantic, associated with a frontal zone and warm air mass is expected to develop early on Saturday, and persist through the weekend.
“As this flow meets higher ground, rainfall is likely to become heavy and persistent.
“In addition, frontal waves running through the flow will locally intensify the rainfall at times, but also lead to lower confidence in the locations of the largest rainfall totals later in the warning period.
“With large uncertainties surrounding both the track and intensity of the heaviest rainfall, this warning will be updated over the coming days in the light of new information.”
