Dudley, which is expected to be the fifth hurricane of the season, takes effect from 6:00 pm on Wednesday to the same time on Thursday.

A yellow Met Office warning for Scotland – with the exception of Shetland – says power outages and loss of cell phone signals are possible. Major disruptions to road, rail, sea and air travel are expected.

The warning added: “Strong westerly winds are expected in western Scotland and Northern Ireland after Wednesday and will spread eastward to most parts of Scotland and northern England by Thursday night.

“There is still some uncertainty about the time and place of the strongest winds, but inland winds of up to 60-70 mph are expected in some places.

“Winds of 80-90 mph are possible around Scotland’s exposed beaches and hills. By Thursday afternoon and evening, winds are expected to initially decrease in the western areas.”

It’s only been two weeks since Scotland was devastated by two hurricanes, Malik and Corey. On January 31, the wind speed at Stornoway, Lewis was recorded at 92 miles per hour.

More than 125,000 households lost power, forcing energy firms to send repair workers as far away as Ireland.

Some Scots customers were cut off for five nights.

Repairs are underway in the north, even after 50 schools were closed or partially closed due to power outages or damage to buildings during the storm.

Dean Stroud of the Met Office said: “This incident is happening with the pulse of strong winds in the jet stream.

“Unfortunately, it exits the jet stream northwest of Scotland, causing massive winds in the west of Scotland – if not severe -.

“The storm is hitting Malik and Corey hard, so some places will still be ready after them.

“It’s also known that another storm could follow, so it’s been a frustrating week for the store. I’m scared.”
