Storm Babet will bring a period of very wet weather to many parts of eastern and northern Scotland from Thursday to Saturday.

What to expect:

Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures

Where flooding occurs, there is a chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services

There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings

There is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses

There is a small chance of fast-flowing or deep floodwater, and communities being cut off by flooded roads

While there is still some uncertainty in the detail, periods of heavy, prolonged and potentially disruptive rainfall are likely to develop on Thursday and continue across eastern Scotland throughout Saturday.

Accumulations of 50 to 100 mm are expected across parts of northern and eastern Scotland throughout this period.

Separate amber and red warnings are in place for parts of northern and eastern Scotland where higher rainfall amounts are expected to lead to greater impacts.

The rain will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds across parts of Scotland, which could exacerbate impacts.
