    Outbreaks of rain reaching northwest Scotland later on Saturday evening will spread southeast across the country overnight and on Sunday. The rain will become persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. Clearer showery weather will reach the Northwest Highlands on Sunday evening, the more persistent rain clearing southwards from Argyll by Monday morning.

    The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, particularly on the road network, where there will be a lot of surface water and spray.
