The deep area of low pressure responsible for bad weather affecting Scotland has been captured in a satellite image.

The University of Dundee received the image at 09:48 from the NOAA-16 satellite.

The low pressure came in from the Atlantic and continued to increase in energy as it headed towards Scotland's west coast.

It has led to significant winds and heavy rain.
