Storm Warning

The third named storm of the season will affect the UK this weekend (12th, 13th October). This time the main issue will be heavy rain that will affect the majority of the Scottish Borders on Friday and Saturday and we should not experience any of the high winds that we saw with Storm Ali.

The Met office have issued two YELLOW be aware weather warning for rain for the Scottish Borders.

Friday between 0500hrs and midnight and this will impact the Western Borders particularly Teviotdale, Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys, and parts of Tweedale.

Saturday from Midnight Friday all day to midnight Saturday, this will affect all of the Scottish Borders and the rain will be heavy and persistent most of the day.

You can expect difficult driving conditions with standing water and heavy spray and a risk of localised flooding causing potential disruption to travel.
