The Met Office said there is a small chance that some affected communities could be cut off by flooded roads. Motorists are warned spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. There’s also the chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

The yellow warning means there is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses, as well as a small chance of properties being flooded causing damage to some buildings.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “Areas of rain will move northwards across Scotland late Monday afternoon and continue during the evening and overnight into Tuesday. This is likely to bring fairly widely 15-25 mm of rainfall, which in itself is unlikely to bring disruption, other than areas of standing water.

"However, there is a small chance of the rain turning heavier leading to areas of 30-50 mm and perhaps even 70 mm for one or two spots. If this did occur this is more likely to lead to some surface water flooding.”
