The Met Office has issued a yellow weather alert for rain, that will affect some of the region through this evening.

In their latest flood outlook, SEPA’s hydrology dute manager, Nigel Goody, said: “In Dundee, Angus and Tayside minor impacts are possible on Saturday into Sunday should the heaviest rainfall affect these areas. Similarly on Sunday, minor impacts are possible in Caithness and Sutherland, Easter Ross and the Great Glen, Findhorn and Nairn and Orkney. Impacts are expected to be localised and include flooding of land and local disruption to travel.

“High waves are expected during Saturday and Sunday with localised spray and wave overtopping possible along eastern facing coastlines of the Western and Northern Isles and in particular the Moray Firth and eastern Caithness and Sutherland coastline around high tide Sunday morning.

“While a generally improving picture, members of the public should remain alert to the possibility of further flooding impacts throughout the weekend and prepare accordingly, especially if travelling. Keep up to date with the latest live flood updates or sign up to Floodline on 0345 988 1188 for the latest information on flood risk in your area.”

A flood alert is still in place for Dundee and Angus, but there is no flood warnings currently in place. To keep up to date on food alert and warnings, visit SEPA’s website.
