From the Met Office: Storm Frank has been officially named as the sixth storm of the season. A very deep area of low pressure is expected to track to the northwest of the UK through Tuesday and into Wednesday. A swathe of very strong winds are expected to develop on its forward side, and affect many northwestern areas.
A deep area of low pressure is expected to track close to the northwest of Ireland, then Scotland late Tuesday and through Wednesday. Gales and locally severe gales are expected to develop during Tuesday evening/night and at first on Wednesday through the Irish Sea and around western and southern coasts of England and Wales along with southern Scotland, easing from the west during Wednesday morning. Some disruption to transport is possible, including ferries.
A band of rain, often heavy, will affect Northern Ireland during Tuesday evening, before spreading east across Scotland, Wales and northern and western parts of England during Tuesday night and Wednesday. Rain will be heaviest and most persistent over higher ground. Please be aware of the potential for moderate levels of disruption in places from both surface water and river flooding.
The Wild Arran Adventure Park will be a major tourist attraction for the island providing a fun day out for all the family. Computer generated images gave a first glimpse of what the park at Brodick Castle and Country Park will look like when it is complete.
It will feature treetop walkways, bridges, chutes and lookout towers, all designed in wood to blend in with the natural surroundings.
