Earlier today the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms for the Western Isles for Thursday. The Warning comes into force at 10:00 Thursday morning and expires at 20:00 Thursday evening. The Full warning and latest updates can be found via the Met Office website or app. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings#?date=2021-09-09&id=e398380d-5560-4d96-99ca-a7daa2e7020d
From the Met Office chief forecaster
Following overnight rain and showers, more intense showers and thunderstorms are expected to break out fairly widely from late-morning, before easing during the evening. Whilst many areas will miss the most intense storms, torrential downpours are likely in a few places. Where these occur, there is potential for 20 to 30 mm of rain in less than an hour and up to 40 mm in 2 hours. This will have the potential to generate surface water flooding, especially if it falls over an urban area.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency have issued a flood alert for the Western isles. Further details can be found via the SEPA website.
I will update this further with my weather watch blog post and Friday forecast later today.
