The Met Office has issued a weather warning for very strong winds in association with storm Doris on Thursday (23/02).

The Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: “Some very strong winds are expected on Thursday in association with storm Doris with gusts of 60-70 mph likely, and 70-80 mph on coasts and hills.

Whilst the strongest winds look to be only short-lived, damage to structures, interruptions to power supplies and widespread disruption to travel networks are likely, with a danger of injury from flying debris. Trees are also likely to be damaged or blown over.

Heavy rain is also likely through Thursday as well as some snow over high ground as the system clears eastwards. These may prove additional hazards.

The warning has been updated to extend the at-risk area southwards.”

 

The warning is valid between 6AM and 8PM on Thursday 24th February. Please take extra care if you’re out & about during the warning time frame.
