  • A trampoline on the rail line near Patterton East Renfrewshire as Storm Caroline brought severe gales

The Met Office has warned Britain to brace for a named storm - the third of the season after Aileen and Brian - set to unleash weather chaos on Thursday. "More broadly across Scotland there will be 60-70mph gusts, but in exposed areas we could see 90mph".

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

"Strong northwest winds may cause drifting of the snow in places with blizzard conditions possible at times across northern Scotland".

Rail passengers faced disruption after a trampoline blew onto the line in East Renfrewshire. "Please do not forget to secure garden furniture/trampolines if you live near the railway tracks".

Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services between Tarbert and Lochranza, Oban and Tiree via Coll and Ullapool and Stornoway have been cancelled for the rest of the day while many other routes are facing disruption.

A spokesman for the Met Office said about the prospects for the region: "There will be sharp frosts forming during the nights and it will get increasingly cloudy on Sunday with rain and possible snow in the north".

CNR International said a total of 69 of the 159 staff on Ninian South, about 240 miles from Aberdeen, would be leaving the structure as a precaution.

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

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

Met Éireann has issued a national status yellow warning as Storm Caroline approaches Ireland.

Snow showers will affect northern Scotland later on Thursday, with the risk extending across more of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England on Friday.
