A yellow weather warning is in place for heavy rain in Clydebank.

A period of heavy and persistent rain is expected to affect southwest Scotland through Friday afternoon (August 30) before spreading northeast into central and parts of northern Scotland overnight into Saturday.

Accumulations of 20-40 mm are expected quite widely with 50-80 mm possible over high ground and perhaps isolated accumulations of around 100 mm over western hills. The rain will be accompanied by strong winds with gusts of 45-50mph in some coastal districts during Saturday.

Rain will clear away eastwards during Saturday afternoon.

The warning is in place until tomorrow afternoon (August 31) at 3pm.

According to the Met Office, the bad weather could lead to a few homes and businesses being flooded, while bus and train services may be affected with journey times taking longer.

Spray and flooding will also make journey times longer on roads.
