A 'danger to life' weather warning for Scotland has been extended by the Met Office, with three days of severe thunderstorms set to batter the country.

We previously told you on Friday how forecasters had issued a yellow alert for the whole of Scotland on Monday and Tuesday, indicating a high chance of severe thunderstorms with flooding, lightning strikes and large hail also likely.

This has now been extended to include all of Wednesday.

The Met Office admit some 'uncertainty' regarding the exact locations and timings of the thunderstorms, but have applied the weather warning to the whole country for the duration of the period. 

They say there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, adding there could be a potential "danger to life" as a result of fast flowing or deep flood water.

Members of the public are to expect delays and cancellations to public transport where flooding or lightning strikes occur, with difficult driving conditions also likely and an "increased chance of accidents."

Scots could also suffer power cuts during the worst bouts of weather.

The weather warning is in place on the days following the weekend, when temperatures are set to soar to match the sunny skies.
