The Met Office is advising that delays to transport are likely, with bus and train services set to be disrupted.

Lorries or other high-sided vehicles might struggle on bridges or exposed routes.

The Met Office has taken to naming storms in recent years. The first storm of this season was Storm Arwen which landed in the UK from November 26 to 27. The next will be called Storm Corrie.

Storms have been named since 2015 to allow for messages about severe or extreme weather to be communicated easily.

Storm Barra was named on December 5. Elsewhere in the UK, yellow warnings for rain and snow are also in place.
