Persistent, heavy rain is forecast to affect southern and central areas of Scotland today. Surface water and flooding from small watercourses and larger rivers is possible throughout the area, particularly in west central Scotland and Ayrshire. Areas around the River Irvine and the Upper Clyde are most at risk.
Flooding could affect roads and parts of communities, causing disruption to travel and transport. On larger rivers impacts may extend into Monday morning as water moves down through the catchment.
Regional Flood Alerts are in place and local Flood Warnings may be issued as rivers respond to further rain in affected areas.
SEPA will continue to monitor the situation closely. The best thing you can do is to be prepared in advance, especially if you are going to be out and about.

Report-A-Flood enables anyone to share information on current flooding issues, helping to reduce the disruption which flooding can cause. Scotland experienced surface water impacts in a number of areas across Saturday, and many people used Report-A-Flood to share details of flooding in their area at floodlinescotland.org.uk/report-a-flood/.
