Edinburgh weather: ScotRail issues train delay warning as heavy rain set to strike the capital tonight
The Met Office predicts heavy showers will strike the capital at 7pm tonight and last until 11pm with the skies not expected to clear until 6am tomorrow (July 15).
Network Rail said it was restricting train speeds on a number of routes on Saturday, including parts of the Glasgow-Edinburgh line between Croy and Castlecary Viaduct and between Cumbernauld and Abronhill Viaduct.
It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning as the rainfall moves in from the south. Other affected areas include Angus, Aberdeenshire and East Highland. The warning is in place between 8pm on Friday and 8am on Saturday.
The rail infrastructure agency said: "We'll be monitoring the weather around the clock and may need to implement further speed restrictions if rainfall totals exceed what's forecast.
"If you're due to travel tomorrow, please check before you leave the house at nationalrail.co.uk or with your train operator."
