Arctic air started to sweep the country this morning in the wake of Storm Caroline, which brought "hazardous winds" to Scotland and Northern Ireland overnight.

Amid gusts of up to 90mph, flying debris is likely and could lead to injuries or danger to life, according to the Met Office.

Winds speed are reported to have reached 124mph in Cairngorms.

A weather warning issued for Sunday has been upgraded to amber which means an increased likelihood of bad weather.

Met Office meteorologist John West said: "We saw a fairly consistent stream of snow showers overnight, and there will be a constant feed throughout the day and into Friday".

Storm Caroline's bitter grip on the United Kingdom is continuing to be felt by homeowners, school children and commuters, with more snowfall peppering parts of the country. The heaviest and most frequent snow showers will progressively become confined to northeast Scotland during Saturday.

The previous Atlantic storm, named Brian, hit Ireland in late October, less than a week after what began as Hurricane Ophelia. Gusts of 70 to 80 miles per hour are expected widely with gusts to 90 miles per hour possible in exposed areas.

Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services between Tarbert and Lochranza, Oban and Tiree via Coll and Ullapool and Stornoway were also cancelled while many other routes faced disruption.

Meanwhile, homes in Broadford, Skye, Lybster and Wick are suffering from power cuts, with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks warning that some could be without electricity until Thursday evening.

The Forth Road Bridge and Tay Road Bridge are closed to double-decker buses while the Skye and Kessock bridges are closed to high-sided vehicles.

Scotland's transport minister, Humza Yousaf, said: "With stormy weather expected across the north of Scotland we would urge people to check with their operators before they travel, especially if they are planning a ferry journey".

Friday will also be cold, Met Éireann said, with sunshine and scattered rain, hail, sleet and snow showers, and temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees in gusty northwesterly winds.

The storm is also likely to move across Britain over the next few days.
