|Kinlochbervie and the north and northwest of Scotland is bracing itself in anticipation of a night of extreme weather.|
This image shows the forecast waveheights for 06:00 on Thursday, 5 December 2013 with the grey area in the centre experiencing a swell of 42ft (14m).
Whilst the Western Isles will no doubt take the full force of the storm it should be expected to continue across the Minch and hit us squarely when it makes landfall on the west coast.
Winds of up to 80 miles and hour are also expected so it'll probably be a good idea to tie down loose objects, wheelie-bins, and chicken coops if you want to find them again afterwards!
Once the storm has passed it is expected to draw cold air down from the north in its wake, bringing snow and ice to the area.
