Scotland's 'danger to life' warning from Met Office over tropical storm

Weather warning as Scotland prepares to be battered by 75mph gusts

A Met Office warning of strong winds has been lifted across much of southern Scotland.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind for Monday and Tuesday.

Winds are likely to reach 55mph to 65mph with top speeds of 70mph.

Storm Helene will batter Britain next week but could also bring warmer weather after the gusts and rain have gone.

A yellow warning means there's a danger of power cuts, falling trees delays to rail, bus, air and ferry services.

And while we are not expecting those in the immediate future, ex Tropical Storm Helene will be giving us a potential lash of its tail and Donegal could very well get some of that. "Winds are likely to gust 40-50 miles per hour quite widely across the warning area whilst some coasts and hills of southwest England and Wales could have gusts of 55-60 miles per hour".

Mueller Drops Most of Manafort’s Charges as Part of Cooperation Agreement
He will not go on trial after all after having reached a plea agreement with the Justice Department. It's not clear whether Manafort will cooperate with Mueller's investigation as part of the deal.

Those in coastal areas are warned to be wary of large waves hitting the seafront.

But the majority of Helene's strong winds are now predicted to spend themselves over the Irish Sea from tonight and into Tuesday morning.

The Met Office has warned tropical storm Helene will sweep in overnight on Monday, meaning people could be waking up to the after effects which could effect their journey to work on Tuesday.

Heaviest rain looks likely to be across western parts, with the southeast perhaps staying dry and very warm.

STORM Helene is expected to bring gusts of wind of up to 85mph across Wirral next week.

However, it will become overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening.
