WEST Fifers are being warned to brace themselves for rain after a yellow weather warning was put in place.

The Met Office has issued the yellow warning and say rain will become "prolonged and heavy at times during Sunday night and well into Monday" across eastern Scotland, moving south into southeast Scotland during the day.

Around 15 to 25 millimetres of rain is expected widely, with the most exposed high ground seeing 40 to 60 mm. Strong east to northeasterly winds are also expected, particularly near coasts where gusts of 50 mph are likely during Monday afternoon.

The Met Office say further heavy rain may cause some flooding and disruption to travel with spray and flooding on roads set to make journey times longer.

Bus and train services may be affected with journey times taking longer while flooding of a few homes and businesses is also possible.
