THE Met Office has issued a new amber weather warning for the north and north west of Scotland.

It comes as the next storm heading for the UK has been named as Storm Jocelyn as the country still recovers from Storm Isha.

The latest amber warning will come into force from 6pm on Tuesday until 8am on Wednesday.

The forecaster said: “A spell of strong winds associated with Storm Jocelyn is expected to affect western and northern Scotland from Tuesday evening.”

The National:

It added that this means there is a “good chance” of power cuts as well as “some damage to buildings” and that a “danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties”.

Meanwhile, a separate yellow weather warning for heavy rain has also been issued for western Scotland.

The National:

It will come into force from 7am on Tuesday morning and last until 6pm on the same day.

The Met Office says this “may cause some flooding and disruption to travel”.

The fresh warnings come after Storm Isha brought travel chaos to Scotland with debris blown onto railways and roads disrupted across the country.

On Monday morning, Police confirmed that an 84-year-old man had died following a collision with a tree in Grangemouth.

Many ferry services were also cancelled and motorists have been urged to drive with “extreme caution”.

Following the latest amber warning being issued, Traffic Scotland again put out a call urging everybody to drive carefully.

As of 8.45am this morning, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks said power had been restored to more than 17,500 customers but that more than 10,000 were still cut off.

Full restoration is not expected on Monday because of the widespread damage, and challenges reaching faults because of fallen trees and a number of road closures.
