Storm Ciara Special - Ayrshire battens down the hatches with 80MPH winds set to hit 

Ayrshire is tonight batten down the hatches and preparing for the biggest Storm to hit the UK in over 7 years.

Currently 3 weather warnings are valid across Ayrshire, a yellow wind warning for Storm Ciara tomorrow (Sunday) and a Yellow warning for Snow and wind on Monday into Tuesday.

Winds could produce gusts between 70 and 90MPH tomorrow especially along the Ayrshire coastline and higher ground.

SEPA have also issued 3 flood warnings for Girvan, Ayr, Troon and Largs valid all day tomorrow due to wave overtopping while ScotRail has warned of possible train cancellations and delays.

The SEPA flood warning maps are below for reference:

Tomorrow's weather warning issued by the Met-Office is as followed

"Storm Ciara will bring very strong winds and potentially some disruption to travel throughout Sunday."

"Strong winds will be widespread and last throughout much of Sunday. Gusts of 50 to 60 mph are likely across many inland areas and around 70 mph in coastal areas. There is a small chance of even stronger winds across parts of Scotland, potentially 70 to 80 mph. However, it is currently very uncertain whether the wind will reach this strength here and when this will occur. A spell of heavy rain will also affect many regions for a time, making driving conditions particularly poor."

It's likely this warning could be updated to Amber either tonight or early tomorrow morning so please keep checking ADN or the Met-Office for all the latest weather warning updates.
