Glaswegians are unlikely to find it difficult to stick to lockdown restrictions for a little longer, as the weather takes a turn for the worse this weekend. 

Strong to gale westerly winds are expected to hit Glasgow this Saturday, with showers expected throughout the day. 

The heavy wind has already started to cause disruptions to train services. 

Power in the overhead wires in the Pollokshaws area was lost after a tree branch was entangled in the wires. 

A Scotrail spokesman said: "Staff are on-site and they're working hard to resolve the fault. We’ll keep you updated." 

Glasgow Central/Neilson services have been suspended while Newton to Glasgow Central services via Maxwell Park have been diverted via Mount Florida.

However, temperatures will not take a severe plunge this weekend and are expected to rise up again to 18°C on Monday. 

Monday will see significantly better weather with a warm sunny morning changing to slightly overcast in the afternoon. 

Meanwhile, in other areas of Scotland flood alerts have been put in places by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.

Nicola Sturgeon has advised Scots to stick to the current lockdown restrictions this bank holiday weekend as any changes do not come into force until Thursday. 

The areas affected include Argyll and Bute; Easter Ross and Great Glen; Findhorn, Nairn, Moray and Speyside; Skye and Lochaber; and Wester Ross.

The warnings stated: “Persistent and at times heavy rain is expected to affect mainly western parts of the area from late Friday through until early on Sunday morning.

“Localised flooding of low-lying land and roads is possible, with standing water and difficult driving conditions likely.

“River flooding from smaller watercourses is possible and by the end of Saturday some of the larger rivers are likely to be high.

“Sepa will continue to monitor the situation and further updates will appear here if the situation changes.”

While a number of ferry services are already cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, at least three Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) routes have fallen victim to the weekend weather conditions.
