Rainfall amounts are expected to be between 10-15mm widely across the Island but with 15-30mm possible over the hills.

The heaviest rainfall is currently expected during the early afternoon.

This will create difficult driving conditions with standing water developing in places on the roads, as well as a risk of some localised flooding.
