THE summery weather will disappear for a bit this week as the Borders is set for two days of heavy rain.

From 12pm tomorrow (Wednesday, May 22) to 6pm on Thursday, May 23 is expected to get persistent and heavy rain, which will become lighter toward the end of the warning period.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "An area of heavy rain is expected to move northwest across Scotland from Wednesday afternoon, with rain most persistent across northern and eastern hills.

"Rain likely to turn more showery through Thursday in central and southern areas.

"There remains some uncertainty on the duration and placement of the heaviest outbreaks, but there is a small chance that it will become slow-moving over Moray and northern Aberdeenshire, and to a lesser extent Lothian and Borders.

"Should this happen then some places could see 60-80 mm of rain falling in 12 hours, with a very low chance of 100 mm."

With this warning there is a risk of homes and businesses flooding and spray and water on the road could lead to difficult driving conditions.

There is also the chance that power cuts will occur.
