Britain will see heavy rainfall and fog today, after the Met Office has issued a yellow rain warning.

Scotland is set to experience torrential rain, mainly hitting western Scotland.

The heavy rain could increase the risk of flooding and impact transport services.

The Met Office said that Scots should expect that “spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures”.

They added: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.”

Affected areas range from the northwest Highlands, down to Glasgow and parts of North Ayrshire.

The day is expected to begin with patchy rain in Northern Ireland, southern and western Scotland and northern England.

A “cooler” turn is expected from Wednesday onwards, and by Thursday, temperatures could drop to 12C.

Data from weather maps shows that parts of Scotland may even plummet to single digits.
