   STORM ALERT The Met Office has put in place severe weather warnings across the UK for Thursday

The Met Office has extended the warning area again - it now takes in nearly all of the county, with the exception of the very north east corner.

Forecasters are expecting the storm - the third named storm of the year - to bring gusts of up to 80mph in northern Scotland.

During Thursday afternoon, a mixture of sleet and snow showers will work their way across the whole of Britain, with the potential for blizzard conditions in Scotland.

CNR International said it would remove all of the 159 staff on Ninian South, about 240 miles from Aberdeen, from the structure as a precaution.

"Flying debris is likely and could lead to injuries or danger to life". Damage to buildings is also possible, such as tiles blowing off roofs.

"Longer journey times and cancellations are likely as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected".

Severe gales and snow showers have caused travel disruption, school closures and power cuts as Storm Caroline sweeps in to the UK.

It will turn windy everywhere on Wednesday, but the strongest winds from Caroline will affect the north of Scotland on Wednesday night and Thursday.

"The greatest impacts are expected to be spray and wave overtopping which could see flooding to low-lying areas and at-risk properties on exposed sections of coastline", said the organisation's duty flood manager Mark McLaughlin.

Snow showers are expected to become increasingly frequent over northern Scotland late on Thursday and are expected across many other parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western England on Friday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Northern Ireland, with Storm Caroline expected to brings snow, ice and winds of up to 70mph.

Sky News weather presenter Nazaneen Ghaffar said: "The strongest winds will be across the North West during Thursday morning and then later in the North East".

Musk wants to send his first Tesla Roadster in orbit around Mars
The first flight of the Falcon Heavy is expected to launch in January of 2018, a bit of a delay from its initial 2013 launch date. As if bringing humans to the Red Planet were not hard enough, he has now announced he wants to send his Tesla sports vehicle too.

Meanwhile, dozens of workers are being removed from a North Sea platform due to safety fears over weather conditions caused by Storm Caroline.
