The forecasting service says spray and surface water on roads will probably make journey times longer while bus and train services are also likely to be affected.

"Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are likely," it added.

"Some short-term loss of power and other services is possible, with perhaps a few tree branches down too."
