    Warning

    This warning has been updated to extend the area southwards a little into the London area.

    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.

    Updated 23 February at 09:52

    Warning

    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.
