Forecasters have issued another weather warning for Tayside and Fife – claiming “heavy and persistent rainfall” could bring a flood risk this weekend.
The local area is now predicted to be hit by a major downpour on Saturday, prompting a Met Office yellow alert which will be in effect for the entire day.
It comes after the Met Office warned of stormy conditions on Friday, with 80mph winds predicted across Scotland. A separate Met Office yellow warning comes into force in Tayside and Fife between 5am and 9pm on the day.
A yellow warning for “heavy rain” also remains in place locally until Tuesday evening.
Additionally a Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) flood warning for the Glen Lyon area, and a less serious alert for the Tayside region, remains in force.
Regarding Saturday’s weather warning, the Met Office said there will be a risk of flooding to homes, businesses and roads; adding that this could cause cancellations to train and bus services. Power cuts and “difficult” driving conditions are also likely.
The forecaster stated: “The zone of heavy rain affecting England and Wales on Friday is expected to slowly move northwards on Saturday, with the focus of heaviest rainfall slowly moving away from south Wales but increasingly into parts of Scotland.
“Areas of high ground exposed to the south and south west will be most affected, with the potential for 50-80 mm in 12 hours, and a chance of over 120 mm in a few spots by the end of the event.
“The rain is expected to be accompanied by strong winds, which may increase autumnal leaf fall and potential for blocked drains/culverts, heightening the potential for flooding.”
