Forecasters have told locals to prepare for further heavy rain and flooding in Perthshire later this week.

The Met Office said a downpour on Friday could put properties at risk and bring travel disruption in western parts of the region, with Perth itself also at risk.

The forecaster issued a yellow warning for rain, which will be in force from 6am until 9pm on Friday.

The organisation said the showers will be “persistent” and “heavy”.

More than 2in of rainfall could land in areas covered by the warning.

The Met Office stated: “Persistent and sometimes heavy rain is expected across the western and central Highlands along with southern Scotland on Friday.

“Accumulations of 30-40mm are likely on high ground with peaks of 60mm across the southern and central Highlands. Drier conditions will extend from the northwest through the evening.”

It comes after weather chaos brought flooding to parts of Perthshire last weekend during Storm Dennis.
