Forecasters said strong winds would develop from around 5pm on Saturday through into Sunday afternoon.
A Met Officer spokesman said an area of low pressure currently developing over the north Atlantic was expected to hit the northern reaches of the UK in the coming days.
But he said there “should well be some bright spells, particularly around Edinburgh and the Borders and up into Fife”.
Temperatures will stay at around 18C before dropping slightly on Monday.
