Regions and local authorities affected include Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, Aberdeenshire, Stirling, Dundee and Perth. 

The alert reads: “Heavy slow moving showers over southern Aberdeenshire Angus and Fife will slowly move west then southwest this morning, moving over the central belt early afternoon.
