FORECASTERS predict another weekend of storms and possible flooding across the Borders.

Storm Dennis is quickly making its way towards the region just days after Storm Ciara caused flooding issues across almost every river in the area.

Several weather warnings have now been issued from tomorrow (Friday) all the way through to Monday.

As well as significant rainfall on Friday and Saturday gale-force winds of up to 70-miles-per-hour are expected on Sunday.

A yellow warning for heavy rain has been issued for a vast area of the Borders, stretching from Duns all the way to West Linton.

And, along with melting snow, the downpours are expected to cause problems with rising river levels.

On top of the Met Office warning for rain, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency has issued a region-wide flood alert for Friday and Saturday.

A spokesperson said: "This alert is for flooding from surface water and rivers.

"On Friday, rain and snow melt will bring a risk of flooding due to surface water.

"This may cause localised flooding of land and roads, and local disruption to travel.

"There are likely to be difficult driving conditions.

"Further rain and snowmelt on Saturday may cause river levels to rise over the weekend."

The Met Office yellow warning for Saturday is forecasting up to four centimetres of rain to fall between 9am and 6pm.

The yellow warning for strong winds runs from noon on Sunday through to noon on Monday.
