Drivers have been warned to be cautious on Scotland's roads his morning after the tail end of Hurricane Gert brought heavy rain to the country.

The 1,000-mile wide Hurricane Gert is now sitting in the middle of the Atlantic, and is expected to drag warm currents from the Caribbean up to the UK.

Continuing changeable and unsettled weather is expected up until Monday. Rainfall should ease off later in the day, with some sunny spells to break through in the south.

"The wet and windy weather will most likely be to the north and west of the United Kingdom, so Scotland, Northern Ireland, north west England and North Wales will have a wet and windy weekend".
