The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain and flooding and travel disruption for parts of Scotland and the Highlands.
The yellow warning in place from 2pm on Tuesday until 6am on Wednesday for Argyll, Bute, central Scotland and the Highlands.
Snow will thaw on the hills in Scotland amid the heavy rain which will lead to flooding. North West Wales has a yellow weather in place between 7pm on Tuesday evening and 3am on Wednesday.
The Met Office said, “Outbreaks of occasionally heavy rain, falling on to already saturated ground, during Tuesday and overnight into Wednesday are expected to bring some localised flooding across parts of western and central Scotland.
“Accumulations widely of 15-25mm are likely, with a few locations, mainly western hills, seeing as much as 50mm.
“In addition to the rainfall, rising temperatures will lead to a thaw of lying snow, especially over the hills and mountains to the north of the central belt of Scotland.”
