Tail end of Storm Jonas to cause ferry disruption

West Coast ferry services are expected to catch the tail end of the storm that brought near-record snowfall to the eastern US this week.

West Coast ferry services are expected to catch the tail end of the storm that brought near-record snowfall to the eastern US this week.

Disruption is expected as heavy rain and high winds from Storm Jonas hit parts of Scotland over the next few days.

The Met Office has issued a yellow "be aware" warning forecasting southerly gales and as much as 60mm of rain across parts of the country, conditions are not expected to improve much over the course of the week.

West coast ferry operator CalMac is warning people to think about their journey before travelling.

"Yet again this winter we are in a position where the weather is likely to bring extensive disruption to service across the Clyde and Hebrides routes over the course of the week. People should look at the forecast carefully before travelling and check their arrangements if they plan to travel with us," said CalMac's operations director, Drew Collier.

"The website and our social media feeds have the very latest information on what is likely to be running and when. We will do all we can do keep services running when the weather allows."
