Some of the impacts so far from Storm Francis.

For us in the Western isles impacts have been minimal and expected to stay that way a gust of 29 mph was recorded at Stornoway Airport and some rain into the Uists and Barra. Again nothing significant.

I will do another update this evening. If anything significant occurs between now and then I will do an extra update.
