Ophelia causes a yellow weather warning for North East

Storm Ophelia, which has been upgraded to a category one hurricane status, could be the first storm to make landfall as a hurricane in Europe since Debbie in 1961.

The Met Office has warned of "potential danger to life", with winds off the south coast of Ireland reaching 109mph (176km/h) at Fastnet Rock.

The amber warning was issued this afternoon and it will last up until 23:00.

Renfrewshire is likely to be hit by the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia on Monday. Longer journey times and cancellations are likely, as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected as well as some bridge closures.

A yellow weather warning for wind has been put in place for much of the west of England, including Bolton from noon until 11.55pm tomorrow.

Very strong winds are forecast to affect most western and some central parts of the United Kingdom during Monday.

The Met Office is warning of strong winds in association with Ophelia - despite the storm being downgraded from a hurricane - particularly towards the coast, bringing travel disruption and big waves.

Southerly winds are most likely to gust between 55 and 65 miles per hour across much of the warning area, especially in the west.

"While on Tuesday a separate Yellow wind warning has been issued from a period extending until 3pm on Tuesday for Northern Ireland, northern England and the southern half of Scotland".
