A weather warning for the impending arrival of Storm Eleanor has been placed on Dundee.
The Met Office warns that strong winds are likely from 6pm tonight until 8am tomorrow as a deepening area of low pressure tracks northeastwards across the northern half of the UK.
The yellow ‘be aware’ warning says: “Combined with a period of high tides, it is likely that some western coastal communities will be affected by large waves and spray, and there is a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown on to sea fronts, roads and coastal properties.
“Power cuts and disruption to other services (mobile phones for example) may occur, and there is a small chance of transport disruption or cancellation of public transport.”
“There is however still a lot of uncertainty over the exact track that the low pressure will take and hence where precisely the strongest winds will be. Gales with gusts of 60 to 70 mph are likely, whilst some western coastal areas have a chance of seeing gusts of 80 mph.”
The latest warnings come just days after the country was hit by Storm Dylan on Hogmanay.
Forecasters said that unsettled weather will continue through the rest of the week, with further bouts of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter, showery periods.
