Scottish Environment Minister Aileen McLeod has encouraged people to continue checking local forecasts as an amber warning for rain has been issued.
The Scottish Government’s resilience committee has met to discuss the latest warnings. The main focus was on the amber alert for Perthshire, Angus and South Aberdeenshire where the rain will fall into already swollen rivers and saturated land.
Dr McLeod said: “Across parts of Scotland communities are working together to begin to recover from the impact of Storm Frank. As the clear-up continues, further rain is forecast with an amber warning for Thursday in Perthshire, Angus and South Aberdeenshire.
“These are some of the areas most affected by Storm Frank, with rivers swollen and saturated land making the situation more difficult. I encourage people to monitor weather and flood forecasts closely and take appropriate precautions wherever possible.
“The Scottish Government resilience committee has met again today to help co-ordinate and support local efforts to prepare for this additional rain and we will continue to monitor the situation carefully.”
Scottish Transport Minister Derek Mackay said: “With more heavy rain forecast for the coming days disruption to transport in the affected areas is likely and people should plan their travel carefully.
“As well as the wet conditions, there is the possibility of snow on the higher routes and our trunk road operating companies will be gritting and patrolling these routes where required.
“People should check all of the available information on travel operators’ websites and Twitter feeds before they set-off on their journeys. For trunk roads, Traffic Scotland will have the very latest updates on conditions.”
