Forecasters at the Met Office have issued severe weather warnings down south with 90mph gales heading for coastal areas and 80mph winds expected to follow, with the potential to uproot trees and damage buildings.
According to reports, the effects could be the worse seen in England since the Great Storm of 1987.
The storm is passing through the Gulf of Mexico, gathering strength, and is expected to hit the UK overnight on Sunday, into Monday morning.
And although at this stage it is not predicted to reach Scotland, the Met Office has said the course of the storm could change between now and Sunday.
A spokeswoman for the Met Office said: "At the moment, Scotland is not affected by the weather warnings in place for England.
"We have issued an amber warning for the early hours of Monday along the South Coast of the United Kingdom and yellow warnings in Wales.
"But Glasgow won't be affected as it stands.
"However, this is a weather feature that is still forming so we are monitoring it.
"As it forms, the track of the storm might change.
"We'll have a clearer picture of it as it gets closer."
Today (FRI) started off with some heavy rain around Glasgow, with temperatures for the rest of the day a little higher than average at 13˚C and winds of 12mph expected.
Tomorrow (SAT) will start off dry with spells of sunshine due in the afternoon and early evening.
It will be a little bit cooler at 10˚C with some stronger gusts of wind reaching 30mph.
Sunday will be another day of sunshine and showers in Glasgow and some of the rain could be fairly heavy with temperatures again around 10˚C.
