Forecasters have warned of potential flooding in the North-east.
A yellow warning for rain, meaning be aware, has been put in place by the Met Office for Aberdeenshire on Saturday from 12.05am until 6pm.
The alert takes in parts of the region including Ballater, Banchory and parts of Mearns as well as up into areas of Garioch.
The forecaster said: “Showers will merge into longer periods of occasionally heavy rain during Friday and again on Saturday across the North-east of Scotland.
“This will gradually lift river levels in Tayside, Dundee and Angus, and to a lesser extent Fife and Aberdeenshire, to bring some minor river flooding for Saturday.
“In addition, be aware of the risk of surface water flooding and spray on roads.”
Frequent showers are expected on Friday, which will bring a greater risk of flooding on Saturday.
A Met Office spokeswoman added: “Over a 48-hour period 20-40mm rainfall could occur quite widely, with 60-100 mm perhaps accumulating over some east-facing hills.”
