The Met Office has issued a yellow weather alert for rain across Ayrshire. 

The alert will be valid from tonight at 8pm until tomorrow morning at 9am with heavy rain expected to spread across Southwest Scotland and the Hebrides in the evening before moving on to affect western and central areas of the country. 

They said on their website: "Some intense downpours, perhaps thundery, will lead to localised flooding of roads. Some travel disruption should be expected through into the morning commute."
