The Met Office has issued an urgent weather warning as Storm Otto is set to hit the UK with 75mph winds.

The bad weather is forecast to hit huge parts of the country on Friday morning, bringing winds in excess of 75mph.

Over the last week, the UK has enjoyed milder temperatures with lots of sunshine, however, that is set to come to an end tomorrow.

Wind weather warnings are in place for Scotland and parts of the northeast for Friday.

They warn of very strong winds from 5am to the early afternoon which could affect travel and transport, and may even leave some areas without power.

The storm was named by the Danish Meteorological Institute and Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: ‘Storm Otto will bring high winds and rain to the UK, with some northern parts of Scotland and the northeast of England likely to get the strongest gusts of wind, possibly in excess of 75mph.

‘Warnings have been issued and could be updated as Storm Otto develops.

‘There’s a chance of travel disruption and high-sided vehicles could be particularly prone to disrupted plans in this set-up.

‘There’s associated rain with Storm Otto, with 40-50 mm of rain likely to fall over parts of western Scotland.’
