    To:
    2000 on Thu 23 February
    Updated 22 February at 10:09 Active

    Warning

    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 issued on Tuesday to extend the area at risk.

    From:
    0600 on Thu 23 February
    To:
    2000 on Thu 23 February
    Updated 22 February at 09:54

    Warning

    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.
