Their status reads as follows:

An Atlantic storm will pass close to the north coast of Scotland on Thursday morning. The UK Met Office have named it Storm Caroline. Severe winds will affect parts of Scotland, but it will generate strong and blustery winds over Ireland also.  Northwest winds of 55 to 65 are expected to gust 100 to 110 km/h - strongest winds in coastal areas and over high ground.

The warning will remain in place from 3am in the early hours of Thursday morning until 8pm that evening .

The warning comes with the forecasting of hail, thunder and sub zero temperatures over the next few days. Widespread frost is also expected tonight with temperatures of -2 degrees and a chance of icy patches.

I wonder what are the odds on work closing down again...
