Get set for windy day
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
