THE Met Office has issued a yellow wather warning covering most of Scotland as another storm is set to hit the country later this week.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are forecasted to batter Clacks and elsewhere from 12noon until 9pm on Thursday, July 11.

According to officials, there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater and lightning strikes.

This could then have a knock-on effect on transportation services, potentially leading to disruptions.

And they have also said that there is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.

Advice issued added that during thunderstorms people should stay in where possible, and unplug all non-essential electrical appliances to reduce the risk of power surges.

Anyone who has to travel during a storm has been advised to drive slowly when visibility is poor, and use dipped headlights if visibility is seriously reduced.
