Parts of Scotland to be battered by heavy rain as Met Office issues yellow weather warning iStock

Parts of Scotland will see a return of heavy rain next week after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning.

The alert, which covers parts of Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Angus, Tayside, Perth and Kinross, Stirling and the Highlands, is set to come into force from 6am on Thursday until shortly before midnight on Saturday evening.

Earlier this month, parts of Scotland saw up to three weeks worth of rain fall over a short period of time, leading to businesses and homes being flooded and areas cut off due to landslips.

It comes as a body was found on Saturday in the River Tay, one week after a pensioner was swept away after losing his footing during floods.

The latest warning could see more flooding occur and the Met Office has warned that there could be a danger to life due to fast moving water.

Power and phone lines could be impacted while motorists have been urged to take care due to dangerous driving conditions.

Public transport may be subject to delays and cancellations amid the heavy rainfall.
