SOME homes and businesses in Scotland could be flooded on Tuesday, forecasters have warned. 

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for south-west and central Scotland, including Glasgow and Stirling. 

A warning is also in place across much of Wales and north-west England. 

The Met Office confirmed “some disruption” is expected in these areas, including “flooding of a few homes and businesses”, “spray” on the roads as well as increased journey times on public transport

The forecaster also warned of “possible” power cuts. A yellow wind warning over the islands north of Scotland is also in place. 

The warning is in place from 6pm on Tuesday until 10am on Wednesday, with wind speeds predicted to reach up to 50mph within the first few hours of this window. 

Met office meteorologist Alex Deakin described the outlook for Tuesday as a “rather dull and damp affair” featuring “gusty winds”.

He said: “The rain will be spreading its way through eastern England and then through Scotland.”

More than 140 flood warnings have also been issued across the UK by environment regulators, because saturated ground caused by recent wet weather means that even areas which avoid the worst of Tuesday’s deluge could be at risk of flooding. 

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued five flood alerts across south-west Scotland, covering Argyll and Bute, Ayrshire and Arran, Central Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway and West Central Scotland.
