Yellow warning for wind issued across coastal areas of Ayrshire
Between 01:00 Wed 24th and 14:00 Wed 24th
A spell of windy weather is expected with gusts widely 50 to 60 mph and over the Hebrides and northern and western parts of Highland gusts are likely to reach 70 to 80 mph.
These high winds will probably affect some bus and train services leaving some journeys taking longer.
Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are likely and some short term loss of power and other services is possible.
Over Northern Ireland peak winds are expected during the early hours of Wednesday.
Over western Scotland, including the Western Isles, the highest winds are expected to be late in the night and early on Wednesday morning and thus coincide with the morning rush hour.
By late morning and early afternoon the highest winds will be confined to the far north of mainland Scotland, Orkney and Shetland.
Meanwhile, there is a chance that Shetland may miss the very highest winds, this particularly dependent on the exact track of the depression bringing this windy weather.
