Later on Tuesday, more patchy and blustery rain will push northwards.

In the south, it will be drier with sunny spells – but a few showers will persist in the west.

Over hills and mountains, 50-75mm of rainfall is expected, according to the Met Office.

But some isolated spots including Argyll in Scotland could have as much as 75-100mm of rainfall.

ScotRail has reported flooding between Saltcoats and Ardrossan.

Heavy rain is affecting parts of Scotland on Tuesday, but in most parts of the country it will clear as the day progresses.
