A three-day yellow weather warning is in place across Helensburgh and Lomond for later this week.

Storm Babet is set to hit the UK later this week, with Argyll and Bute set to feel the effects of it.

A Met Office yellow warning has been issued across the area on Thursday, Friday and Saturday - October 19-21.

The warning for heavy rain says there is a chance of flooding in some areas and dangerous driving conditions could be possible.

It adds that there is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses.

The latest warning comes a little more than a week after torrential rain struck many parts of Scotland.

We previously told how roads became rivers across Helensburgh and Lomond at the start of October as nearly a month's worth of rain fell in 24 hours.

Ten people were airlifted to safety from A83 on Saturday, October 7,  as seven landslips hit the route.

Sandbags were used in Helensburgh's town centre to protect businesses and were still visible at some doors days later.

There were dozens of flood warnings across the region as rail lines disappeared under water and transport was nearly impossible in many directions.

As well as the A83 being closed, the A82 was affected along with many local roads.

From Cardross to the Churchill estate to Rhu to Arrochar and Tarbet, the flooding was widespread.

The latest warning affects all of southern Scotland and large parts of the central belt, as well as northern and eastern England, from Wednesday, spreading to the north-east of Scotland, the Highlands and the Northern Isles from Thursday onwards.
