A very unsettled spell of weather is expected tomorrow (Wednesday November 28th) with strong winds, combined with widespread and in places heavy rain, according to the UK Meteorological Office.

Ferries are cancelled on routes from Tarbert, Lochmadddy and Castlebay today with warnings on other routes and for later in the week.

Winds are expected to increase from the far southwest early on Wednesday, spreading northeast, with areas adjacent to the Irish Sea most exposed to the south to southeasterly wind. There are 'Yellow Alerts' for both wind and rain.

Wind gusts of 60 mph are expected, with a few more exposed locations seeing 70 mph gusts.

Winds will also turn west to southwesterly across Northern Ireland and western Scotland later, transferring the main focus for strong winds here, then finally to northern Scotland through the evening.

The strong winds will also bring some rough seas and large waves, with some coastal impacts possible. Winds will moderate across the south of the warning area by evening and then across remaining parts overnight.
