Met Office issues amber weather warning

The Island's Met Office is warning heavy rain could cause flooding on the Isle of Man today.

An amber weather warning came into operation last night and will remain in force until 9am tomorrow.

Forecasters predict heavy rain will affect all parts of the Island, and with ground already saturated from rainfall earlier in the week localised flooding is likely, along with tricky driving conditions.

The Met Office is also expecting coastal overtopping along the west of the Island, particularly Peel Promenade.

Conditions are due to improve tomorrow morning.
