Significant disruption is possible on Tuesday across the south west of Scotland due to heavy showers and thunderstorms. Minor disruption is also possible across parts of the Central Highlands and Tayside with further disruption possible on Wednesday.
Significant surface water impacts are possible across parts of Dumfries and Galloway, western Borders, Ayrshire and Arran, West Central and Argyll if the heaviest showers fall over built-up areas or the transport network. The greatest risk of impacts will develop during the afternoon, but may continue into the evening.
SEPA has regional flood alerts in place across many parts of the south and west of Scotland.

What’s the difference between a Flood Alert and a Flood Warning?
We use forecast weather information provided by the Met Office combined with our own observation of rainfall and river levels and advanced hydrological modelling to provide advance warning of flooding.
