  • Strong winds of up to 80mph are expected to hit Aberdeen and most of northern central and eastern Aberdeenshire

The weather service has upgraded its warning to amber in northern parts of Scotland, instructing residents to be prepared to deal with extreme conditions.

According to the Met Office warning, "icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight" on Friday.

A yellow "be aware" warning has also been issued for southern Scotland and the north of Northern Ireland between 6am and 6pm on Thursday.

Gusts of up to 110km/h are expected along all coastal areas today ahead of Storm Caroline's passage over the North West and North towards Scotland on Thursday.

The warning, which was announced this afternoon, will remain in place until 8pm on Thursday evening.

Despite the north and northwest being most at risk, Met Eireann say "a slight dusting of snow may occur in other parts of the country".

In a yellow warning, the forecaster said: "Gusts of 60-70 miles per hour are expected quite widely, with gusts to 80 miles per hour possible near north facing mainland coasts and across the Isles".

Police said protests broke out in the village during the gunfight with locals clashing with government forces. The house, where from militants were firing on the security personnel, was damaged in the gunfight.

Showers could affect all regions and at times more persistent periods of rain, sleet and snow are possible.

Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, while a loss of power in some areas is also possible.

Some 7.8in of snow could land on higher ground, with about 2in possible at lower levels.

"It is likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves".

Government forecasters expect this month to be hit by easterly winds, which frequently come from as far away as Russian Federation and Siberia to bring Britain's coldest winter weather.

This includes a second warning on Friday for chances of snow and ice.
