Scottish schools forced to close as storm Brendan brings hurricane winds

According to Scotsman, schools in parts of Scotland have had to close this morning due to warnings of severe gale force winds.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, the Western Isles Council, has closed all its schools for safety reasons as storm Brendan starts to batter the coastlines.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for most parts of the UK, including the west and east coast of Scotland.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “As it pushes though, pretty much every part of the UK will feel the influence.”

Everywhere in the UK will see rain on Monday at some point, he said, adding that the storm will move through pretty quickly.
