The Met Office at Ronaldsway is warning of heavy rain, coastal overtopping and gales from 10am today until 3pm tomorrow.

Forecasters warn the rain will lead to localised flooding, with up to 50mm falling over the hills.

Waves are expected to bring debris onto exposed roads and promenades at high tides, with Castletown and the northern end of Douglas prom expected to be worst affected.
