Spells of heavy and persistent rain are expected between midnight on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday.

Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible. Spray and flooding on roads could make journey times longer and could affect some bus and train services.

In addition, strong winds may be an additional hazard at times, perhaps with falling trees causing some interruptions to power supplies.
