    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.

    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.

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.
