DANGER TO LIFE WARNING FOR HEAVY RAIN AND FLOODING IN SCOTLAND
Scotland and parts of the north will have to endure heavy downfalls of rain with amber and yellow warnings in place.
The Met Office has warned there could be danger to life from midnight tonight until midday on Wednesday with fast flowing and deep floodwater likely.
Homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings and there is a good chance some communities will be cut off by flooded roads.
Delays and some cancellations to train and bus services are expected with flooding leading to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.
Scotland will be worst hit by the deluge, and 120mm of water is set to fall over a 36-hour period on Tuesday and Wednesday for areas including Perth, Stirling, and Dumfries and Galloway.
