The Met Office says heavy rainfall combined with some snowmelt across the hills is now “likely” to lead to some flooding.

Strong winds are expected to accompany the rainfall, and may add to travelling difficulties across areas higher and more exposed routes.

Delays and some cancellations to train and bus services are also likely.

The warning is in place from 6am Tuesday 19 January to 11.59pm on Wednesday 20 January.
