SCOTLAND has been hit with ANOTHER weather warning as strong winds and heavy rain are set to batter the country.
In the country’s wildest week of the year, Storm Agnes is poised to become the first storm of the fall.
An 800-mile-wide Atlantic storm is expected to bring hurricane-force winds of 80 mph and two inches of rain.
Wednesday’s unrest in Scotland will cause power outages and travel chaos due to falling trees and flooding.
And the west of Scotland will be among the worst affected areas.
The Met Office will name Storm Agnes when an Atlantic weather system has potential yellow warnings.
The incoming ordeal was shown on a weather map.
Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said: “We are keeping a very close eye on it.
“If we think the storm deserves a name, we will give it a name.
“Severe storms are expected, with potential wind and rain impacts across many parts of the UK.”
Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “There is a real possibility that Storm Agnes could arrive.
“Strong winds and heavy rain could cause disruption.
“The best advice is to stay current with the forecasts.”
The Met Office said gusts of up to 60mph and heavy rain will hit many inland areas on Wednesday, with up to 80mph on Irish Sea coasts.
Further strong wind gusts and rain showers will follow until the weekend.
A Met Office forecaster said: “From Thursday there is likely to be a mix of showers, heavier rain and brief drier spells, with the wettest conditions occurring in the north-western areas, possibly accompanied by strong winds.”
Some of the worst disasters in two years occurred in the last few days.
Former Hurricane Nigel dropped up to four centimeters of rain in Scotland today, with gusts of 60mph.
London experienced its wettest day in two years last week as former Hurricane Lee drenched many areas.
It rained five centimeters in the capital and seven centimeters in the northwest.
