Orkney
An updated FLOOD ALERT has been issued for Orkney. Heavy thundery showers are likely to develop during Saturday.

The greatest risk is if these occur over built-up areas and the transport network. Possible impacts may include flooding of low-lying land, roads, properties and disruption to travel. Thunderstorms are intense, localised, hard to predict and their flooding impacts vary. Due to the very localised nature of flooding from thunderstorms, your specific area may not be impacted.
