A YELLOW warning for "heavy and prolonged rain" has been issued for parts of Ross-shire, Lochalsh, Lochaber and Inverness-shire.

The warning comes into force at midnight tonight and will remain in place until 3pm on Wednesday.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Heavy and prolonged rain is expected through Tuesday and much of Wednesday. Flooding is possible in places along with disruption to travel."

They warned that bus and train service might be affected and also advised motorists that "spray and flooding on roads will make journey times longer".

They added: "There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads.

"There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings."

As well as parts of the Highlands, the alert also extends as far south as Loch Lomond and the Cowal peninsula.
