Tayside and Fife could be battered by winds of up to 80mph this weekend as stormy conditions sweep across the country.
The whole of the UK will be under a Met Office yellow weather warning for wind from 6pm on Saturday until midnight on Sunday.
Gusts of between 70mph-80mph could batter coastal regions and hilltops, with areas in the north and west expected to be hit hardest. Heavy downpours of rain have also been predicted.
Widespread winds of 50mph-60mph are forecast.
The Met Office warning states: “Very strong winds are likely across much of the UK later Saturday and through Sunday.
“Gusts of 50 to 60 mph are likely across many inland areas, with gusts 70, possibly 80 mph around some exposed coasts and hills, especially in the north and west.
“Heavy rain will be an additional hazard, especially over western hills. Winds of this strength across a wide area have the potential to produce disruption to transport, along with some coastal impacts, especially in the west.”
The Met Office says there will be widespread travel disruption with planes, trains and ferries all expected to be disrupted. Bridges and roads could also be forced to close due to the conditions.
The forecaster has warned of “large waves” affecting coastal routes and communities.
