Tayside and Fife will avoid the worst of the weather brought by Storm Hannah this weekend.
Weather forecasters warned gusts of up to 80mph (130km/h) and low temperatures are to be expected across southern and central parts of the UK.
But Courier Country will miss the spell of strong winds and potential disruption.
Met Office spokesman Craig Snell said: “It’s not really going to affect us. We are going to get some rain from the storm system but, generally, that is as bad as it is going to get.
“The worst of the winds are on the southern side of the system, but we can expect further spells of rain throughout the rest of today.
“Some of that rain might be heavy, with lots of surface rain at times, but the wind is not going to be that strong at all so, on this occasion, the Tayside and Fife regions have dodged this one.”
Forecasters said there will be outbreaks of overnight rain, which will move north by dawn.
Highs of 12C are expected, with a few bright spells developing over Perthshire.
The Met Office issued a yellow warning for winds in southern Wales, as well as parts of the south and south-west of England, warning of gusts up to 70mph on coasts.
The warning is due to last from 9pm on Friday until 3pm on Saturday, with forecasters predicting “a risk of disruption to travel”.
The Irish weather service has also issued a status orange advisory for Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick, warning of the weather “becoming stormy on Friday evening and overnight as Storm Hannah moves in”, bringing gusts of 110-130km/h.
It is predicted Hannah – the fourth named storm in the UK and Ireland in 2019 after Erik, Freya and Gareth – will lead to a much cooler Saturday, in contrast to the hot and sunny bank holiday weekend.
