The heaviest rain and strong winds are expected up in the mountains and could lead to some flooding from rivers including the River Dee.
Conditions will improve throughout Saturday with just short spells of rain in the afternoon.
A band of #rain will move north and east across the UK this afternoon. The far northeast should escape fine though, and brighter, showery #weather will follow into southwestern areas. Mild for many, but feeling cooler in the #wind pic.twitter.com/1gsR8VCwjV
