A SEPA statement said: “These showers are likely to be very isolated, so many areas will not be affected.
“However where they do occur the heavy downpours could result in surface water flooding impacts.
“The greatest risk is if these occur over urban areas and the transport network. Impacts could include flooding to low-lying land, roads and properties, and disruption to travel.
“There is also a risk of localised flooding from small or fast-responding rivers if the heaviest showers occur over these areas.”
