MORE weather warnings for wind and rain have been issued across the country following the disruption caused by Storm Kathleen.

The Met Office issued warnings covering mainland Scotland from Tuesday at 1am until Wednesday at 6pm.

The forecaster said travel disruption and damage to homes and businesses were possible.

A yellow rain warning covering south and eastern parts of Scotland – including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen – is in place from 1am to 6pm on Tuesday - with a second warning coming into force on Wednesday at 9am for the west of Scotland.

This will stay in place until Wednesday at 6pm.

Between 20-40mm of rain is expected across most areas, but some places could see as much as 50-60mm of rainfall.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency also had 24 local flood warnings and 16 flood alerts in place.

Kathleen, the 11th named storm of the 2023/24 season, brought disruption to weekend travel with strong winds reaching 70 mph and rain affecting much of the UK and Ireland.

Oli Claydon, meteorologist from the Met Office, said: “Certainly for the wind warnings, it’s that combination of the high tide as well.

“If you’re near the coastline do take care, don’t get too close to any sort of edges or seafronts because you’re likely to see some wave overtopping at times and there could be debris being flown around the coastline.

“With the rain warnings, it’s just a case of knowing your flood risk.”

Claydon added: “It’s probably parts of western Wales where you’ll see the strongest combination of wind and rain in the south.

“The rain pushes further north quite quickly before the wind comes into play.”

Cloud and rain will stall across parts of Scotland on Tuesday, but it will turn brighter elsewhere with scattered showers through the afternoon.

Unsettled conditions will continue into Wednesday as more cloud and rain arrives from the west and pushes eastwards throughout the day.
