Parts of Scotland are set to see heavy rain over the weekend, accompanied by strong winds.

The Met Office UK forecast said: “Chilly start on Friday with a frost in the north, but quickly turning mild and unsettled with spells of wind and rain or showers, these particularly severe over the weekend.

Wind gusts are expected to “widely reach in excess of 50mph, even across some inland areas, with gusts of over 60mph possible over hills, coastal areas and exposed locations,” adds the Met Office.

“While these winds have the potential to bring impacts they are not as strong as the gusts we saw last weekend with Storm Ciara when a gust of 97mph was recorded on the Isle of Wight.”
