Amber weather alert

THE MET Office has issued an amber weather warning for heavy rain in Dumfries and Galloway tomorrow.

The downpours are expected to start at 3 am on Friday morning and will remain in place until at least 6 pm.

Forecasters have warned that spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

And Superintendent Stewart Mackie, of Police Scotland’s Road Policing Division, said: “An amber weather warning has been issued for heavy rainfall and flooding across southern Scotland, and people should consider delaying any travel plans until conditions improve.
“If your journey is essential, please plan ahead by making sure you have sufficient fuel and supplies in your vehicle, a charged mobile telephone and always drive as the conditions allow.
“Be aware road closures and travel delays are likely, with potential disruption to public transport services. Further information and safety advice can be found on the Met Office, Traffic Scotland, and local authority websites and social media channels.”
