Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Res­i­dents have been warned to tie down gar­den fur­ni­ture and watch out for fly­ing de­bris as Storm Car­o­line is ex­pected to hit Pais­ley to­day.

Gusts of up to 80mph are ex­pected in some ar­eas as me­te­o­rol­o­gists are ex­pect­ing wide­spread travel dis­rup­tion, fall­ing trees and dam­age to loose struc­tures.

In Pais­ley, a yel­low warn­ing for to­day, to­mor­row and Satur­day is in place, but this could be raised to am­ber if the storm wors­ens.

A yel­low warn­ing means“you should plan ahead think­ing about pos­si­ble travel de­lays, or the dis­rup­tion of your day to day ac­tiv­i­ties,”ac­cord­ing to the Met Of­fice.

A spokesman said:“Peo­ple would be ad­vised to take the time to stow away gar­den fur­ni­ture and other loose struc­tures. They should also plan for longer jour­ney times, such as the school run.

“I don’t an­tic­i­pate Pais­ley reach­ing the am­ber level, but our me­te­o­rol­o­gists will be track­ing the storm very closely.”

Dur­ing to­mor­row, in­creas­ingly fre­quent snow show­ers al­ready af­fect­ing north­ern Scot­land will ex­tend across many other north­ern and western parts of the 2-5cm of snow is likely to hit Ren­frew­shire this week­end, with 10-20cm in more re­mote places.

Road, rail, air and ferry ser­vices may be af­fected, with can­cel­la­tions pos­si­ble. Some short term loss of power and other ser­vices could also af­fect res­i­dents. pais­l­ey­cen­tre.co.uk
