Locals in Angus have been told to prepare for a heavy downpour and flooding this weekend.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the county, warning that the area will be battered by “persistent, heavy” rain.
And the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has placed both Angus and Dundee under a flood alert.
Conditions are expected to deteriorate overnight into Saturday with much of Scotland being affected by a major downpour.
The Met Office yellow warning will be in place from 6am on Saturday until noon on Sunday.
The forecaster warned locals to expect flooding on the roads, with homes and businesses also at risk. Public transport could also be affected.
Up to 1.5in of rainfall could land in Angus and neighbouring Aberdeenshire on Saturday.
The forecaster posted: “Persistent and occasionally heavy rain is expected to develop across north-eastern Scotland on Saturday.
“Rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40 mm are likely through Aberdeenshire, eastern Moray and northern Angus and as much as 60-80 mm across Easter Ross and Caithness, perhaps a little more over high ground.
“Rain will lose intensity through Sunday.”
A Sepa statement reads: “A flood alert has been issued for Dundee and Angus. Surface water flooding is anticipated to affect the region throughout Saturday until Sunday morning.
“Potential impacts may include localised flooding of land and roads, flooding affecting individual properties, and disruption to travel.”
