An area of low pressure affecting the Republic of Ireland and parts of the UK which was named by Met Éireann – the Irish met service – as Storm Debi continues to bring very strong, potentially damaging winds, and heavy rain to parts of the country
This includes persistent rain across north-east Scotland with a yellow warning remaining in place till 9pm.
Jason Kelly is a chief meteorologist with the Met Office.
He said: "Whilst the very strongest winds will have eased somewhat before reaching the UK, we are still expecting some significant impacts and a wind warning has been issued.
"Storm Debi will move through into the North Sea during Monday evening and developed in part, because of a very strong jet stream crossing the Atlantic.
"Further areas of low pressure may develop and affect the UK during the coming week."
Storm Debi is the fourth storm named as part of the 2023/2024 storm-naming initiative involving the Met Office, Met Éireann and KNMI, the Dutch national met service.
