  4. There may be trouble ahead...our weather team predict a stormy night to come

    BBC Scotland Weather

    The Met Office has an Amber warning in force, covering most of Scotland. Be prepared for gusts of 70 to 80mph widely, with 90mph gusts over the bridges, the Western Isles and exposed parts of the west coast.

    Expect widespread travel disruption, some structural damage, very large waves around the coasts, and some disruption to power supplies.

    The winds will drive in frequent and heavy showers, wintry over the hills and the high ground, and merging to give some longer spells of rain across Argyll and the Highlands - there could be some localised flooding.

    There will be some hail and thunder in the mix at times too. Temperatures tonight will dip to between 2C and 5C.  

  5. Impact of Storm Henry 'will be worse than Gertrude'

    Storm Henry comes just days after Storm Gertrude brought gusts in excess of 100mph as well as heavy rain and snow.

    BBC Scotland weather presenter Kirsteen Macdonald said that "in terms of impact", Storm Henry is likely to be worse than its predecessor.

    She said: "Winds are widely likely to reach 70-80mph by evening and tonight through heavily populated areas in the Central Belt, with perhaps 90mph across the bridges, the Western isles and western coastal areas."

    Jim Fraser, SBC’s Emergency Planning Officer said: “We are already experiencing high winds in many areas, and the wind is expected to gradually become stronger during today.  The strongest winds are expected from later into the evening and into Tuesday.

    “Our Emergency Bunker opened at 3pm today and will remain open through the night until 9am tomorrow morning to co-ordinate the multi-agency response to any impact of the high winds.

    “Residents should expect travel disruption and difficult driving conditions, so please take extreme care when you are out and about.”

  10. Roof blown off Broughty Ferry flats by Storm Henry winds

    Storm Henry's high winds have blown off part of the roof from a block of flats in Broughty Ferry.

    Firefighters were called to the five-storey building in Forthill Road shortly after 14:00 after a large section of felt was dislodged.

    Dundee City Council engineers inspected the damage after fire crews cordoned off the area.

    A Police Scotland spokeswoman said none of the roofing material was blown onto nearby roads.

  11. Police in Western Isles advise people not to travel this evening

    Forecasters expect the winds to peak between 15:00 and 17:00, and then again at about 21:00, with gusts of up to 90mph.

    Very high waves are also likely, which could lead to flooding on coastal roads the police said.

    All public transport on the islands and ferries have now been cancelled.

    Flights from Stornoway airport are currently running but there are expected to be cancellations later today as the wind speeds increase.
