Ayrshire could be set for floods as heavy rain and strong winds are set to come in.

The Met office has issued multiple warnings for the area, beginning tomorrow.

East and South Ayrshire homes and properties could become flooded as a result of the weather.

A yellow wind alert is in place covering the entirety of the Scottish mainland from 2am Tuesday morning until 6pm later the same day.

They've said people can expect some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport and some bus and train services will likely be affected, with some journeys taking longer.

There could be delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges and it’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves

Some short term loss of power and other services is possible.

Then there is a yellow rain warning in place, which applies to Ayrshire from 6am tomorrow until 6pm the following day.

But as well as this there's an amber rain warning in place for southern Scotland from midday tomorrow until the same time the following day, which could affect southern parts of East Ayrshire such as New Cumnock.

The Met Office say that homes and businesses are likely to be flooded, with damage caused to some buildings. Fast flowing or deep floodwater is likely, causing danger to life and there's a good chance some communities cut off by flooded roads they add.

And the Scottish Environment Protection Agency is telling people to be prepared too.

Janine Hensman, SEPA’s Duty Flooding Manager said:

"The Met Office has issued an amber warning for rain from 12:00 on Tuesday 23 until 12:00 on Wednesday February 24 for Perth and Kinross, Stirling, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire, Dumfries and Galloway, and the Scottish Borders. 

"Following the wet weather experienced over the weekend, river levels remain high but will rise again. More heavy rain is forecast on Tuesday which will continue throughout the day and into Wednesday. This is likely to cause significant river flooding impacts in these areas along with surface water flooding affecting properties and significantly disrupting travel and infrastructure.

“We will be issuing regional Flood Alerts and local Flood Warnings throughout today and tomorrow. People living and working in affected areas are advised to plan their essential journeys and consider the steps they need to take now to be prepared. You can stay up to date with regional Flood Alerts and local Flood Warnings at sepa.org.uk/floodupdates.

“SEPA is working 24/7 to monitor rainfall and river levels and is in close contact with the Met Office and other partners to review the forecasts, which are combined with local expertise from all regions of Scotland to understand and present the flooding risk. We would encourage the public to remain vigilant around river and surface water flooding. The most up-to-date information is always available on our website.”
