Heavy rain warning from the Met Office

Yellow weather warning will be in place until this afternoon

The Ronaldsway Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain.

It will come into force at 10am this morning and will remain in place until 4pm.

Outbreaks of rain will turn heavy and persistent from mid-morning, widely giving 10-20mm across the island, with a risk of 20-40mm over higher ground. 

This will likely lead to difficult driving conditions, with areas of standing water as well as a risk of localised flooding.

This morning's sailing (Thursday, 7 December) from Douglas to Heysham, and its return leg have both been cancelled due to the adverse weather conditions.
