Storm Georgina has arrived in the UK and many are quite grumpy this morning as they've been kept awake by its noise. 

Gusts of up to 90 mph are possible today (January 24) and the storm has already caused some travel problems.

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for high winds in the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, Strathclyde, Tayside, the Highlands and Northern Ireland until 2pm.

Yellow warnings for heavy rain have also been issued for northern England, Yorkshire and the Humber until 11am.

Forecasters warn there could be flooding of a few homes and businesses and several roads are also expected to be inundated.

A landslide has been reported on the A76 between Kirkconnel and Kelloholm in Dumfries and Galloway and vehicles are being diverted, whilst some ferry services have been cancelled or postponed.

Despite the day only just starting, many have been irritated by Storm Georgina before even leaving the house, as they've been kept awake.

Some have found it scary, meanwhile others have taken to posting insults on Twitter toward the storm, although we're not sure that will help.
