The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind on Monday 13 January.
Storm Brendan, as named by the Irish Meteorlogical service Met Éireann, is heading in from the North Atlantic and gusts of up to 70 mph are expected in coastal areas and possibly 50 mph at some exposed inland locations.
The warning does not start until 10:00 on Monday but the winds are expected to build up in the hours before, so if you are travelling to work on Monday morning, be aware. Rain is expected to follow the winds arriving for the evening rush hour.
SEPA has issued a flood warning for Aberdeenshire and especially in coastal communities where the strong winds, higher than normal tides and the rain will all have an impact.
Inland, rivers and burns may see increases in levels as the rain runs down from the higher ground.
