Sailings to and from the Isle of Man are likely to be disrupted when the cold snap bites.

A decision will be made by the Steam Packet Company as to whether sailings from Douglas to Heysham and return journeys will operate.

The weather is set to deteriorate from the early hours of Wednesday, with gusts expected to be over 50 mph.

Isle of Man prepares for Storm Barbara's effect Credit: Chris Kilpatrick

The Isle of Man Government has issued an Amber weather warning for tomorrow.

Storm Barbara will bring an active set of weather fronts across the island from mid-morning to early afternoon, touching storm force around midday, giving gusts of 60-65mph quite widely across the island but perhaps as high as 70mph in more exposed spots.

Although the severe gales will ease from mid-afternoon, the westerly wind will remain gale force into the evening, giving the potential for splash over of sea water and debris onto Fenella Beach in Peel and the eastern end of Peel Promenade around the time of high tide (19:12 GMT).
