A MET Office weather warning flags the prospect of potential disruption from "very strong winds" overnight and in to tomorrow morning.

The Yellow warning kicks in for the Highlands from 10pm tonight and runs until 2am the following morning.

The Met Office says it could mean some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport.

And it warns: "It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves."

The Yellow weather warning – the least severe of three which move up to amber and red depending on expected severity – indicates that severe weather is possible over the next few days and could affect people.

It means that people should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of day to day activities.

The Met Office under these circumstances is monitoring the developing weather situation and and advises others to keep an eye on the latest forecast "and be aware that the weather may change or worsen, leading to disruption of your plans in the next few days".
