Clydebank has been issued an amber weather warning for wind this weekend as Storm Isha makes landfall in the UK.

This comes after a yellow weather alert for wind was issued for the entirety of Scotland earlier this week.

Now, most of the south will see an amber warning with a "danger to life" risk also likely.

The alert will be in place from Sunday, January 21 from 6pm until 9am on Monday, January 22.

What to expect from Glasgow's amber weather warning this weekend

According to the Met Office, this is what you can expect from Clydebank's new amber weather warning as Storm Isha comes to Scotland.

  • "There is a good chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage."
  • "Probably some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs."
  • "Longer journey times and cancellations likely, as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected."
  • "Some roads and bridges likely to close."
  • "Injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties."

What do yellow and amber weather warnings mean?

Yellow weather warnings: These warnings are issued for a range of weather situations that are likely to cause some low-level impact (such as travel disruption) to a limited area.

Such weather warnings mean most people can continue with their day as usual.

Other yellow warnings are issued when extreme weather is capable of causing an impact on most but where the certainty of this is much lower.

Amber weather warnings: Moving up in severity is the amber warning which is used when severe weather has the potential to disrupt plans.

This means the weather could hinder travel, cause road and rail closures, and power cuts and pose a risk to life and property.

When these are issued, residents should change or alter their plans to protect themselves.
