Flood warnings are in place, particularly in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Borders
Flood alerts and warnings are in place across parts of Scotland, as heavy rain caused localised flooding.
Sepa has issued 13 flood warnings across the capital, the Lothians and the Borders – which means flooding is expected.
Overnight, several drivers were rescued from cars stranded in heavy waters in Midlothian.
And several roads in Edinburgh have been closed, including part of the city’s A720 bypass.
The A7 Dalkeith Road has also been shut, as was Balcarres Street between Morningside Road and Craighouse Gardens.
The North Esk has seen flooding, as has the River Tyne
And Lothian and Borders Police have warned of possible flooding around the Water of Leith.
Scotland’s environment agency Sepa issued flood warnings for the Roseburn, Stockbridge, Warriston and Haddington areas of Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Warnings are also in place for the Borders, from Grantshouse to Eyemouth, Greenlaw to Allanton, Peebles (Eddleston Water), Preston to Paxton, Romannobridge to Lyne Station and Shiplaw to Crossburn, including Eddleston.
Many other parts of the country were subject to a Sepa flood alert, which means flooding is possible. These are; Ayrshire and Arran, Central, Dumfries and Galloway, Dundee and Angus, Fife, Tayside and west central Scotland.
And fans at Scotland’s biggest music festival have been warned to expect soggy conditions with rain forecast. Crowds of up to 85,000 are flocking to Balado, near Kinross, for the T in the Park festival.

Meanwhile, the Taste of Edinburgh Festival has cancelled all its Saturday sessions after its site at The Meadows was flooded.
The event, from 6-8 July, featured pop-up restaurants, chef demonstrations and exhibitors.
In a statement, organisers said: “This has not been an easy decision but the health and safety of all our restaurants, exhibitors and visitors is of paramount importance.
“We’re continually assessing the situation and will make a decision at 6pm today about whether we will open for our Sunday sessions. We are insured and weather aside, we are doing everything we can to make this possible.
“If we are open on Sunday, Saturday tickets will be valid for entry subject to site capacity.
“Refunds on Saturday tickets will be made but at this current time we would ask visitors to be patient as we deal with some very challenging conditions.”
