Met Office yellow weather warning as winds reach 65mph in parts of Scotland

Parts of Scotland are bracing for strong winds as the Met Office issues a yellow weather warning for the wind.

Forecasters are expecting gusts of up to 65mph in some areas as blustery weather is expected to wreak havoc tomorrow.

The warning is in place from 3:00 a.m. tomorrow morning until 2:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon.

The Met Office said the band of strong winds will arrive in Scotland after tracking the Irish Sea throughout the weekend.

Winds are forecast to reach 50-60mph along coastal districts, with stronger gusts of 65mph possible in more exposed regions.

The core of stronger winds will head north throughout Sunday, reaching parts of Scotland in the early morning.

This can lead to poor coastal conditions and transport disruption, according to the Met Office.

This weekend, temperatures will hover around 10 to 12°C, normal temperatures for the season.

Gusts of up to 65 mph are expected tomorrow.

What to expect

  • Likely delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed roads and bridges
  • It is likely that some coastal roads, waterfronts and coastal communities will be affected by sea spray and/or large waves
  • Likely some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer
  • Some delays in road, rail, air and ferry transportation are likely
