This will be followed by a further yellow warning from the Met Office on Saturday for thunderstorms in parts of Scotland. 

Those in the city have been told to brace for a number of extreme conditions. 

According to the Met Office's website, Friday's weather could lead to disruption across the country, with a chance of flooding to homes and businesses and damage to buildings. 

Experts also warned there is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.

Additionally, spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, with a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services in these areas, or even that some communities become cut off by flooded roads. 

Heavy rain such as this is thought to be likely in Glasgow and across Scotland throughout the weekend.
