PARTS of the North-east saw more than a month’s worth of rain in a single day as Storm Frank hit.
The average monthly rainfall for Braemar in December is 75mm (2.9in).
But yesterday, in the space of 24 hours, 77mm (3in) fell in the area.
It wasn’t the worst hit place in Scotland, however, as Tyndrum, near Glencoe, saw 88.6mm (3.4in).
Balmoral saw rainfall of 59.8mm (2.3in) and Aboyne 41.2mm (1.6in).
Lower ground around Aberdeen escaped the worst of the weather with Craibstone registering 17mm (0.6in) and Aberdeen International Airport 14.4mm (0.5in).
Helen Chivers, meteorologist at the Met Office, said the weather was set to be calmer today but there would be some more rain in the evening.
But she added: “It will be nothing like the level we’ve seen with Storm Frank thank goodness – I think we’ve all had enough.
“When the bells ring at midnight it should be mostly dry and clear, with the chance of a fluttering of snow in the mountains.”
