A spokesperson from the Met Office said: “A spell of persistent and heavy rain is expected to affect western Scotland during Tuesday.

“Widespread rainfall totals of 40-60 mm are expected with as much as 80-100 mm over some high ground exposed to the strong south-westerly winds.

“Much of this rainfall will fall in around 12 hours during the middle part of the day.”
