The Met Office has issued a “danger to life” yellow weather warning for winds which could reach as high as 80 mph in some areas along with heavy rain.
Two regions have been given the weather warning which comes into effect from midnight until 10 am on Tuesday for parts of Western Scotland and the southeast.
The Met Office said, “Rain will turn heavy and persistent across western Scotland during the early hours of Tuesday, clearing southeast during the morning.
“Widely 30 to 50 mm of rainfall is likely with perhaps 80 mm over some of the mountains.”
The forecasters added, “There is a chance of a deep low pressure system bringing gusts of 70 to 80 mph to northern parts of the UK on Wednesday.
“Should this develop disruption would be expected.
“However, the most likely scenario is for gusts of 55 to 65 mph within parts of the warning area, most likely the northern Irish Sea and parts of eastern Scotland, bringing some more localised impacts.
“In addition, heavy rain may prove an additional hazard across northwestern areas.”
