There’s already another storm on its way and its name is Conor
Storm Conor would like to take this chance to apologise to absolutely nobody.
Storm Barbara is only getting started and already a successor has been named and is poised to inflict further misery on Ireland and the UK over the Christmas period.
With wind warnings in effect until 6pm this evening and further wind and rain already forecast for Christmas day and beyond, it looks like the miserable weather is going to hang around for the foreseeable future thanks to the latest storm on the block.
Scotland is likely to experience the worst of what Conor has to offer, but as the graph below shows, we’re not going to get off lightly either.
