Youch!

Above was the Met office prediction for the deep low causing the windy weather tonight.

Looked like the center was right above Lewis at midnight…

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Northern Constabulary are monitoring weather conditions in the Outer Hebrides as high winds are now moving in during the early evening of Saturday through to Sunday morning. There is a high risk that roads will be closed and the public are advised not to travel. All public facilities will be closed by 6 pm and it is anticipated that there will be no bus services after this time. High tide will also occur in the two hours up to about midnight. The violent  storm is expected to hit later tonight. Saturday afternoon south easterly winds will shift to the south west and increase to around Force 11. Winds – potentially around 90 mph in places – will result in very heavy seas and will coincide with high water around 11pm in Benbecula.  High tide at Castlebay is 15 minutes before that while Lochmaddy is 15 minutes later. Loose objects lying around in gardens etc. should be put away or secured. The Comhairle and the Police will continue to monitor the situation and further information will be issued as appropriate via media. People are advised to “Go in, stay in and tune in.”
Sleep well folks!
