Storm Arwen has seen a number of weather warnings issued across Scotland for Friday and Saturday and the storm looks as though it could wreak havoc with SPFL and Scottish Cup fixtures up and down the country.

The Met Office have issued several yellow and amber warnings for wind, snow and ice as well as a red warning for areas on the east coast with extremely high winds expected to cause damage as gusts of up to 100mph batter parts of Scotland and England.

Fans travelling across the country have been warned to be prepared for the winds and road conditions – with Police Scotland advising on a number of precautions for people to take if they are travelling while Storm Arwen hits.

Superintendent Simon Bradshaw, at Police Scotland’s roads policing section said: “We are asking motorists to be prepared for the potential for widespread strong winds and the risk of snow following the Red and Amber weather warnings from the Met Office.

“You should allow extra time for your journey, ensure your vehicle is sufficiently fuelled and drive to the road conditions. Consider taking some warm clothes, food and water within your vehicle, in case of delays and ensure your mobile phone is fully charged.

“I would urge motorists to check the Met Office and Traffic Scotland websites and social media before setting out on their journey, particularly in those areas most affected by the predicted adverse weather.”

The Red and Amber warnings are in effect from 3pm this afternoon and currently remain in place until Saturday morning while the Yellow warnings for wind lasts until 6pm on Saturday.
