"We are seeing an improving situation as the impacts of Storm Callum reduce with the main band of rain moving through by the end of the afternoon.

Today potential impacts will be focused across southern Scotland with some risk of river and surface water flooding in Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders. A lower risk of river and surface water impacts is also present across Fife, Edinburgh and the Lothians. Typical impacts could include travel disruption and flooding of low-lying land and roads. There will still be rain in some parts overnight into Sunday.

As of Saturday morning the number of Flood Alerts has reduced, with two in place for Dumfries and Galloway and Scottish Borders.

Two Flood Warnings have been issued for Upper Tay and Ballinluig to Logierait."
