A FLOOD WARNING has been issued for Nairn.
Heavy and persistent rain has affected the wider area overnight and is forecast to continue throughout the morning. Water levels in the River Nairn and surrounding burns and watercourses are rising as a result and will continue to get higher over the next few hours.
Agricultural land and low lying properties along the River Nairn between Broadley and Fishertown in Nairn are at risk of flooding. The risk downstream of the railway bridge including in Fishertown may be worse around the time of the high tide and the next tide will be at lunchtime.
