Scots have been warned to brace themselves for two days of “heavy and persistent” rain as weather warnings were issued across the country.
The Met Office have placed a yellow warning across western parts of Scotland and the central belt from 6pm on Sunday lasting until 6pm on Tuesday.
Experts have warned of the possibility of travel disruption, road floods and power cuts in the worst affected areas.
A spokesperson for the forecaster said: “Outbreaks of persistent and at times heavy rain will affect western Scotland from late Sunday afternoon until Tuesday evening.
“During this period 80-100 mm of rainfall is expected to fall quite widely, with the potential for 150-250mm over the highest ground.”
More than 30 flood alerts and warnings have been issued for west, central, Tayside and northern regions.
The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa) said persistent, often heavy, rain and winds were likely to have “significant flooding impacts”.
It identified areas around the Spey, Forth and Tay as most at risk.
The latest warning comes as the south of the UK was told the weather will be “very warm” with some areas in south-east England could see temperatures rise to 24C by Tuesday.
