Fifers have been warned to brace themselves for strong winds and delays to public transport as we head into the weekend. 

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind, covering Friday and Saturday. 

High winds will be impacting Scotland from midday on Friday, November 26, and last until 6pm on Saturday, November 27.

Forecasters say there is potential for a period of very strong winds to develop across the north of the country on Friday afternoon, which will then extend south during the evening.

You should expect some delays to road, rail, air, and ferry transport - power cuts may occur.


A forecaster statement said: "The strongest winds will arrive across northern Scotland during Friday afternoon before developing further south through the evening across the rest of Scotland, Northern Ireland and some exposed coasts of northern England.

"The location and strength of the very strongest winds remains uncertain.

"However, gusts seem likely to reach 50 to 60 mph widely, with 70 to 80 mph possible in coastal locations, particularly in parts of Scotland."
