A wave of low pressure that passed over southern Scotland and northern England on Thursday led to some localized flooding problems, including the closure of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.
Due to flood waters backing up on the runways between 4 and 5 p.m. local time, the airport was closed for more than 12 hours before reopening after 6 a.m. local time Friday.
This fast-hitting storm led to numerous road closures across the region as well.
