Flood warnings have been issued for parts of Perthshire following an overnight downpour associated with the arrival of Storm Gareth.
Though Tayside and Fife is expected to avoid the worst of the poor weather conditions, heavy overnight rainfall has led to the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) highlighting rising water levels on the River Earn.
The organisation has flood warnings in force from Crieff to Innerpeffray and Bridge of Earn, and between Carse of Lennoch and Lochlane.
A Sepa statement reads: “River levels on the River Earn are high following overnight rain.
“River levels have been slowly dropping during Tuesday morning but there will likely remain some localised flooding of low lying agricultural areas during the next few hours.”
Met Office weather warnings covering England, Wales, Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland are in force for Tuesday and Wednesday after the forecaster warned that Storm Gareth could bring travel disruption and power cuts.
Tayside and Fife experienced heavy rainfall overnight, with windy conditions due to set in from Tuesday into Wednesday.
A Met Office spokesman said gusts of up to 55mph could batter the region.
However no Met Office warnings are yet in place for the local area.
The spokesman added: “Your area isn’t in the warning area but we’ll still see pretty strong winds in your neck of the woods and a spell of heavy rain. First thing on Tuesday the rain should have cleared away and there will be brightness and sunny spells.
“By Tuesday evening (there could be) overnight gusts of 55mph. It will stay strong into Wednesday morning as well. Tuesday night into Wednesday, with gusts of up to 50mph or so.
“The rest of the week will stay fairly unsettled. It will turn colder and then turn a bit more showery in nature.”
The weather is being caused by an area of low pressure moving in from the Atlantic.
