Latest rainfall accumulations

This is a chart of estimated rainfall totals since 12 UTC on Monday that’s a period of almost 26 hours, the estimates look fairly reasonable when compared to the reported totals from the SYNOPs. The highest orographic rainfall totals are in the range 50 to 60 mm over the highest ground across western Scotland and not exclusively focused on the western Isles or Isle of Skye as the yellow warning suggested and all in all pretty normal for that part of the world. The cold front has been carried further northwest today as small wave runs along it, and now there’s now a gap in the upper frontal cloud across the mainland. That’s made it a mild and bright day, with strong and gusty wind from 210° across Easter Ross.
