STV Weather presenter Sean Batty said: “The main focus for thunderstorms on Thursday is likely to be across Sutherland, southern Moray, western Aberdeenshire, Perthshire, inland Angus, Fife and Edinburgh.

“Thunderstorms will be slow moving which means there could be very localised high rainfall amounts which will lead to flooding which may have an impact on travel.

“Road users can expect large amounts of surface spray in these areas and there is likely to be flooding of some roads and railway lines.”

Sean said more rainfall can be expected for certain areas but the weekend will be mainly dry for festivals including TRNSMT.
