A status yellow weather warning has been issued for the entire country ahead of Storm Ernesto's arrival this weekend.

Tropical storm Lane is expected to strengthen rapidly over the next few days and turn into a hurricane by Friday, but it is still unclear whether the storm will hit the islands.

According to the Met Office, Storm Ernesto will no longer be classified as a storm when it arrives in the United Kingdom, due to it losing some of its power as it heads across the body of water, but it will still impact on the United Kingdom with heavy rain and strong winds.

"Maximum sustained winds remain near 45 miles per hour with higher gusts".

The national forecaster is expecting it to be humid tomorrow (Saturday). Central and eastern Scotland, much of England, sunny spells but quite quickly the cloud thickens across central and western Scotland.
