Wind warning of yellow

Yellow warning of wind

Be aware

06:30 on Thursday until 20:00 on Thursday

Some very strong winds are expected during Thursday in association with Storm Doris. Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected widely across the warning area, with the risk of 70 mph on coasts and hills. A small swathe of even stronger winds is likely to develop - most likely across parts of northern England, Wales, the Midlands and later East Anglia. Here a short period of gusts of 70 to 80 mph is likely - please refer to the separate Amber warning. Travel services could be affected including some restrictions on bridges and disruption to ferries. Some damage to trees and buildings is also possible. This is an update to the warning to extend the area across the remainder Northern Ireland.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A rapidly deepening area of low pressure, named Storm Doris, is moving quickly east across the UK with strong winds on its southern and western flanks. Whilst there is confidence in the very windy spell, there is still some uncertainty about the track of Doris, and therefore the extent of the strongest winds.

Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

18:00 on Thursday until 09:00 on Friday

Icy stretches will form on many untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths this evening, overnight and into Friday morning. In addition wintry showers could give 1-3 cm of snow in places, mainly on higher ground above 150 m, but perhaps to lower levels in the far north of Scotland.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

As the more persistent rain, sleet and snow clears on Thursday afternoon and evening, temperatures will fall quickly and untreated surfaces will freeze, with ice forming, especially in areas with snow cover. Further showers spreading from the west could cause salt wash-off and give further accumulations of snow in places, chiefly on high ground over Scotland.
