Two people have been injured as our region feels the force of Storm Barra.
They were in Fitz Park, Keswick, where a tree has fallen in the strong winds.
In Dumfries and Galloway, the weather has resulted in several schools having to close in the western part of the district.
Stranraer Academy is shut because of weather damage to the building's roof. Drummore School has also closed after downed trees prevented access to nearby roads.
Borgue School, Kirkcudbright, has suffered a power failure while Park School, Stranraer, said it closed because of "adverse weather posing a danger to children and staff" and Sheuchan School, Stranraer, said it had suffered "high winds, flying debris, structural damage". Details of school closures in the district can be found here.
On the railways, a tree has fallen on the line between Carlisle and Lockerbie, which means services between the city and Edinburgh and Glasgow are suspended.
Trains are also cancelled between Stranraer and Girvan, in Ayrshire, because of strong winds.
South of the border, a tree on the line earlier today saw services suspended between Oxenholme and Windermere. There were also delays on the service between Barrow and Whitehaven because a shed roof was blown onto the line. These situations have since been resolved.
Drivers have been advised to avoid travel unless it is absolutely necessary.
Yellow warning for both wind and snow are in place across our region and stay in force until midnight.
