Storm Helene is set to hit Scotland
The Met Office has issued a Yellow “be aware” warning of wind.
The weather forecaster says Storm Helene is expected to bring a period of very strong winds to western parts of the UK from 6pm on Monday to noon on Tuesday.
It says injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible.
Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible.
Some roads and bridges may close, and trees may be an additional hazard.
Met Office chiefs added that there is a chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.
It added: “Storm Helene is expected to push north east towards the UK late Monday, before clearing quickly to the north of Scotland through Tuesday morning.
“There remains large uncertainty in Helene’s exact track, however a spell of very strong winds is expected, initially for parts of south west England and west Wales, then later south west Scotland and the south east of Northern Ireland.
“Winds are likely to gust to 55 to 65 mph quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70 to 80 mph in exposure.”
Paisley was already experiencing bad weather by lunchtime yesterday, with very heavy rain bouncing off the streets, forcing people to take shelter in the doorways of shops and other buildings.
More rain is forecast for today, and tomorrow is expected to be the wettest of the weekend.
