Potato blight causing misery for Scottish farmers
Scottish Borders farmers are preparing for what could be the worst harvest in decades as the wettest June on record devastates their crops.
Waterlogged fields mean there's been a sharp increase in the number of 'potato blight' outbreaks in the Scottish borders over the past week.
The Scottish Agricultural Association says it has launched an investigation.
NFU Scotland President Nigel Miller said the wet weather may affect prices customers pay in supermarkets, but the full extent of the problem won't be known until September.
Rain in the west will turn heavier as the day continues. Dumfries and Galloway and West Cumbria will see the worst of the showers.
Sarah Kelly has the latest forecast.
Overnight rain is expected to continue across large parts of the region this morning.
There may be some brighter spells this afternoon, mixed in with a few showers. But more rain is expected.
Kerrie Gosney has the latest forecast.
