Picture: Met Office has yellow alerts over most of Scotland.
A YELLOW warning for heavy rain remains in force throughout today (Thursday) as the UK gets battered by rain after the warmest weather in years. 

On Monday Andy Page, the Chief Forecaster at the Met Office said warned: "The UK has seen a particularly dry warm spell of late but this week will see a big change for many.”

He added: “From Tuesday we will see more widespread showers and thunderstorms across many parts. The public are advised to keep up to date with our forecasts and warnings."

The forecast, however, is yet to improve – although it can – with heavy rain and thunder storms set to make persistent appearances in Cumbernauld’s weather system for the next couple of days.
