11 August 2014 - The remnants of ex-hurricane Bertha have brought some very high rainfall totals and strong winds across parts of the UK - with severe conditions continuing in parts of Scotland today.
Some places saw more rain in 24 hours than they would expect in the entire month of August. Some of the notable totals include:
Numerous other spots saw high totals over the weekend and the rain has continued in parts of Scotland through the first part of Monday.
There have been some severe impacts in Scotland, where heavy and persistent rainfall has resulted in a number of surface water flood problems - including property flooding and transport issues across the North East of Scotland.
Marc Becker, SEPA's Duty Hydrology Manager, said: "We are now seeing the larger rivers respond and further flooding impacts are anticipated in Huntly, Elgin and communities along the River Spey including Kingussie, Newtonmore, Aviemore, Aberlour, Rothes, Garmouth and Kingston. There is also the possibility of issues on the Dee, Don (including impacts to camp sites adjacent to these rivers) and Findhorn later today.
"We're continuing to closely monitor the situation, update Floodline and work with our partners in Police Scotland and local authorities. The latest alerts and warnings are available on our website and you can also sign up on our website to receive them direct to your phone, for free. Do remember that not every area in Scotland is covered by a flood warning scheme, if there is a flood alert out for your area you should prepare for flooding."
In Scotland, The heaviest of the rain should ease and become more showery. The region's larger rivers will continue to rise for some time to come and the full impacts may not be realised until later this afternoon.
SEPA added that they expect the situation in most areas to ease through this evening and overnight.
Wind gusts over the weekend have also caused problems - with numerous events cancelled across the country.
As the low pressure from ex-Bertha continues to move away from the UK, conditions should become gradually more settled as weather improves through to the end of the week.
