There is a Yellow Warning from the Meteorological Office for windy weather between 12:00 on Monday October 16th and 23:55 on Monday 16th.
The Met Office says that this spell of very windy weather is associated with the aftermath of hurricane/storm Ophelia.
Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journeys times and cancellations possible. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs could happen, perhaps leading to injuries and danger to life from flying debris.
Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves.
The warning was recently updated to delay the onset time of the strong winds and increase the likelihood of the event occurring.
