On Monday through until Wednesday strong winds and milder air are expected to become established across the area.

Lying snow is expected to start melting at most levels and although no significant rainfall is expected, there is the potential for flooding from small watercourses and rivers.

Any flooding impacts are most likely to include flooding to low-lying land and roads and individual properties.

Surface water may also be an issue in low-lying areas especially if the ground remains frozen.

SEPA will continue to monitor the situation, round the clock, and further updates will be provided if the situation changes.

Advice and information is also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188.
