THE next storm heading for the UK has been named as the effects of Storm Isha are still being felt across the country.

The Irish Met Éireann weather service has named Storm Jocelyn, which is currently heading east across the Atlantic and is expected to make landfall on Tuesday and into Wednesday.

The Met Office said to expect “strong winds and heavy rain” as Storm Jocelyn hits the UK and Ireland. It issued amber weather warnings for wind from 6pm on Tuesday until 8am on Wednesday.

The new warning covers much of the cost of the mainland of Scotland, Orkney, and both the outer and inner Hebrides.

The UK weather service already had yellow warnings for wind in place from 4pm on Tuesday until midday on Wednesday covering all of Scotland.

More severe amber and even red warnings were in place as Storm Isha hit Scotland on Sunday night, bringing winds reported up to 107mph.

An 84-year-old man died after colliding with a fallen tree in Grangemouth.

Other impacts of the storm saw thousands of people without power and no rush hour ScotRail trains running.

Many ferry services were cancelled and on the roads police have urged motorists to exercise caution when travelling as conditions may be hazardous.

Dozens of schools were also shut on Monday.

The “destructive” storm-force winds damaged overhead power lines in the north of Scotland, affecting supplies for more than 20,000 Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution customers in the area.

SSEN said that as of 8.45am on Monday supplies had been successfully restored to more than 17,500 customers, with 10,500 properties currently off supply.

It said that while teams are working hard to reconnect customers, full restoration is not expected on Monday because of the widespread damage, and challenges reaching faults because of fallen trees and road closures.

Andy Smith, operations director at SSEN Distribution, said: “From first light this morning our teams have been carrying out line patrols to assess the full extent of any damage to our network.

“This work will continue through the day, enabling us to target our repairs in the right location and provide our customers with estimated restoration times. The latest information will be displayed on our Power Track app.

“We’re working closely with resilience partners to support our customers’ welfare. I’d also encourage anyone who may need additional support to contact our dedicated teams on our power cut helpline, 105.”
