It was forecasted that many storm centres will pass just north of the UK, battering Scotland each time they pass by. Gusts of 50-80 mph was expected where some coasts might expect gusts up to 100 mph specially in Scotland.
The storms could lead to further travel disruption, loss of power and flooding, particularly in coastal areas.
