The Met Office has put in place a Status Yellow rain warning for parts of Scotland today (Thursday, September 8).

The warning is in force for the hours between 3:00p.m and 11:45p.m and applies to an area stretching from border towns like Jedburgh and Langhol, east towards Wigtown, upwards through Larkhall to Newburgh and around the east coast.

The covered area can be seen in the picture below.

While the warning is in place, those areas can expect spray flooding on roads, which will most likely make journey times longer.

Flooding of a few homes and businesses is also possible.

Coinciding with this warning, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has issued nine flood alerts and four flood warnings.

These also apply tomorrow (Friday, September 9).

A flood alert has been issued for Dundee and Angus; Tayside; Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City; Central; Dumfries and Galloway; Edinburgh and Lothians; Fife; Findhorn Nairn Moray and Speyside; and the Scottish Borders.

A flood warning has been issued for Kinnaird/Bridge of Dun; Finavon and Tannadice; The River Isla at Coupar Angus; and Aberbothrie.

Under the warning, low-lying agricultural areas are at risk of flooding.

The agency shares live flooding information on its website, where local floodline quick-dial codes can also be found.

This largely wet and unsettled weather this week is likely due to the interaction of two successive tropical cyclones – hurricanes Danielle and Earl – according to the Met Office.
