Storm Isha’s arrival is set to batter Scotland with strong winds bringing a risk to life with gusts of up to 85mph.
The Met Office issued a fresh amber weather warning as conditions turn increasingly windy over the weekend.
The alert comes in to place at 9pm on Sunday and will be in place until 9am on Monday covering most of Scotland.
Gusts reaching 65-75mph are expected widely, and even 80-85mph gusts over parts of west and northern Scotland.
The agency said there is a chance that injuries and “danger to life” could occur from flying debris.
The Shetland Islands is the only part of Scotland outside of the amber alert but will still see windy conditions as a yellow warning comes in to place.
Scots have been urged to check road conditions and timetables before travelling as services may be affected with longer journey times and cancellations.
The Met Office warned that some areas may experience power cuts and mobile coverage may also be affected by the blustery conditions.
This is the ninth named storm since the storm naming season began in September, and the second of 2024 after Storm Henk at the start of January.
The warning comes after a week of arctic conditions throughout Scotland which has seen the closure of multiple schools.
Amid the snowy conditions people in the northern Highlands, Orkney and Shetland have been urged not to travel amid “extremely challenging” road conditions.
