  • Londoners Battle Against Wild Weather

Caroline, the third named storm of the year, is also expected to cause power cuts and bring large waves to coastal routes, seafronts and coastal communities in northern Scotland.

"There will be devastating winds in some parts".

Tomorrow the Yellow weather warning for snow and ice is valid from 00.05 on Friday to 18.00 on Saturday.

The Met Office has extended the warning area again - it now takes in nearly all of the county, with the exception of the very north east corner.

All schools and nurseries in Lewis, Harris and Uist in the Western Isles are closed to pupils on Thursday as a precaution while 31 primary schools, five secondary schools and 19 nurseries in the Highland Council area and two schools in Aberdeenshire are shut. Train services between Glasgow Central and Neilston were cancelled or delayed while staff removed the obstacle. "Please keep in mind to secure garden furniture/trampolines if you live near the railway tracks".

Nearly half of the 159 people working on the Ninian South platform, located 75 miles east of Shetland, have been removed after safety checks on its steel support structure.

Meanwhile, Met Eireann also said that snow can be expected on Thursday and Friday in the west and northwest, especially on hills and mountains.

"Looking into next week, there are further showers - some of which could be snow".

"However, there is also a yellow wind warning in force for the rest of Scotland and the north of Northern Ireland for Thursday, as gusts up to 60-70mph are expected quite widely there".

Conditions will start to turn wet and blustery, especially across the north and north west of the United Kingdom, before gales hit on Thursday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind and possible snow for London and the south east of England.
