VIDEO: More galeforce winds forecast for Falkirk area

Waiting for Video...

Galeforce winds and stormy weather are expected to batter the area tonight.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for large parts of the country, with gusts of up to 70mph forecast.

The worst of the gales should clear overnight, giving way to wintry and blustery showers tomorrow.

At the weekend, severe weather spoiled some festive fun for youngsters.

Santa’s Super Sleigh parade through Falkirk town centre planned for Saturday was called off after warnings of high winds.

This week, organisers Falkirk Delivers said: “We know now that we made the right decision.”

Last Thursday’s torrential rain also had the emergency services on high alert and our video shows the scene at Grange Burn in Grangemouth the following morning when it was judged to be a flooding risk.
