The yellow weather warning for high winds that was issued across Scotland no longer applies to the north and most of the north-east.
The Met Office updated its warning of high winds to affect only as far as Stonehaven on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Previously, a yellow weather warning was issued for the whole of Scotland over the next couple of days. This has now shrunk to the Central Belt and southern Scotland.
Strong winds were expected to strike on the west coast of Scotland before travelling eastwards across the country affecting all of Scotland. These approaching storms have been named Storm Dudley and Storm Eunice.
Now Storm Dudley is forecasted only to affect as far up as Stonehaven from 3pm onwards tomorrow. This is instead of the whole of the north and north-east of Scotland.
Yellow weather warning still in place for other areas
A yellow weather warning for strong winds is still in place from 3pm on Wednesday February 16 into Thursday morning.
⚠️ Yellow weather warning UPDATED ⚠️#StormDudley will bring strong winds to some central and northern parts of the UK
Wednesday 1500 – Thursday 0600
