“Persistent rainfall is expected to cause surface water flooding across parts of western Scotland from late Friday night to Saturday evening.
“The areas expected to see the most impacts are Skye and Lochaber, Argyll and Bute, Wester Ross and western areas of Tayside and Central Scotland where travel disruption, and flooding affecting properties and communities is possible.
“Localised flooding of low lying land and roads from small watercourses and travel disruption is also possible in the Western Isles, Easter Ross and Great Glen, Moray, western areas of Dundee and Angus, West Central Scotland, Ayrshire and Arran, Dumfries and Galloway and western areas of the Scottish Borders.
“Conditions are expected to improve from Saturday evening. As always, we continue to work closely with our partners in the Met Office, the Scottish Flood Forecasting Service and local authorities to ensure they have the latest updates and would encourage members of the public to remain vigilant.
