The yellow warning will remain in place until midnight tonight, however the weather is not expected to pick up much for the rest of the week.

The forecast reads: “Areas of rain moving into northern Scotland are expected to become heavy with some embedded showery outbreaks as the band slows down and focusses across the east coast and Moray Firth.

“Between 20-30mm of rain is expected through the period, however localised heavier bursts of rain are likely to build totals toward 50-75mm.”
