The south and east of the country can expect the risk of flooding to decrease as heavy rain is forecast to subside.
On Tuesday in the Borders the Huntly Burn has burst its banks causing six inches of flooding at the entrances to Borders General Hospital.
There are also reports of excess water around Selkirk on the A7, the A72 at Dirtpot Corner and outside Innerleithen on the A68 south of Jedburgh.
Despite predictions of brighter weather ahead the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has kept flooding alerts in place for Edinburgh, the Lothians and the Scottish Borders.
More sandbags were handed out in the Stockbridge colonies where around 100 homes were flooded over the weekend.
On Tuesday night, forecasters issued a stark warning to expect heavier and more prolonged downpours. The Met Office issued a severe weather warning for floods in Strathclyde, Central Scotland, Tayside, Fife, South West Scotland and Lothian and Borders. It has warned the public to expect heavy rain and possible travel disruption over the next 36 hours, especially throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians.
But an Amber "be prepared" warning has been downgraded to a yellow "be aware" warning for South West Scotland and Lothian and Borders for Wednesday.
A Met Office spokesman said: "Outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, on Wednesday morning, will tend to clear southwards into the afternoon. The public should be aware of the likelihood of standing water and spray on roads and perhaps some localised flooding".
Sepa said there was particular concern for the East Lothian area.
Caroline Sharkey, duty flood adviser at Sepa, said: "Rivers are expected to rise on Wednesday in response to the heavy rain predicted across the south east of Scotland. The slow moving and persistent rain also means that there is potential for surface water flooding issues, which we expect to affect the west of Inverness, Angus and eastern Perthshire, particularly the Pitlochry area."
Forecasters said the wet summer was caused by strong atmospheric winds blowing storms over the Atlantic towards the British Isles.
The Scottish Government's resilience team met on Tuesday over the wet weather. Transport Minister Keith Brown said traffic would be monitored very closely for the next 24 hours.
He said: "Traffic Scotland is alerting the travelling public in the affected areas and those who will be heading into the affected areas via its usual channels - website, VMS signs, internet radio and social networks. This is clearly a very frustrating time for everyone affected, especially at a time of year when they are entitled to expect some respite, however I wish to express my thanks for those involved in the response and to the wider public for their continuing patience."
STV weatherman Sean Batty said: "The heaviest rain is expected to fall over Tayside, Fife, Lothians, Borders, Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and parts of Lanarkshire.
"The rain should start to ease through the afternoon with many areas becoming dry into the evening. Better news for Scotland over the coming days with the heaviest of the rain expected to sweep across England and Wales. The weather should become drier and brighter for many parts of Scotland."
