There is an amber weather warning in place for the weekend as Storm Alex is scheduled to sweep through the region.
A band of significant rainfall will become slow moving and heavy during Saturday and Sunday bringing possible disruption.
Forecasters warn that large amounts of rainfall could cause a danger to life, damage to buildings from flood water and cause transport service cancellations.
Deputy Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office Nick Silkstone said: Saturday will be a very wet day as heavy bands of rain push north and west across the country, followed by showery rain on Sunday. It'll be cold and windy too with a risk of coastal gales in some areas.
