Some information from Stirling Council that may prove useful.
The Met Office amber weather warning for wind now covers the whole of mainland Scotland, with Storm Isha set to impact the country.
There is a high risk of disruption due to the very strong, potentially damaging winds. The advice from national agencies is to consider if you need to travel but plan ahead if you must.
The amber warning is in effect from 6pm today (21 Jan) until 6am tomorrow. Yellow warnings are also in place, including for rain, that cover the Stirling Council area.
SEPA has issued a flood alert for the Central region with the persistent rain posing a particular risk to urban areas and the road network.
Our Roads Teams will be monitoring conditions constantly and will be prepared to respond to emerging situations.
