Strong winds are heading for Midlothian as two rapidly-deepening Atlantic storms pass over the north of the UK.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for severe weather in the Lothians.

According to the Met Office: “Northern Scotland is likely to see the strongest winds as the storms pass by on Friday and Saturday, with gusts of up to 90 mph or more possible in the most exposed regions.

“Although it will be very windy for most areas, winds will be less strong in southern areas.

“Winds will increase significantly late on Thursday and into Friday as the first of two low pressures passes to the north of Scotland. This system is likely to bring gusts of 60-70 mph across northern parts of the UK and perhaps 80-90 mph in the most exposed parts of the far north of Scotland.

“The low will move quickly eastwards on Friday afternoon, but there will be little respite before another rapidly deepening low brings further strong winds later on Friday and through the day on Saturday. Again this may bring gusts of up to 90 mph or more in the far north of Scotland.”
