Storm Doris now set to hit south coast, Met Office warns
The Storm Doris weather warning has just been updated to include the south coast, with the Met Office warning of winds of up to 60mph tomorrow.
The warning previously covered most of England and Wales, but not the south. However, at 10am today the yellow warning area was increased to include Brighton and Hove.
If winds reach these speeds, there could be disruption to ferries and damage to trees and buildings is also possible.
Northern England, Wales, the Midlands and East Anglia are still expected to bear the brunt of the gales, with winds of up to 80mph possible. An amber warning is in place for some areas.
The Met OFfice’s chief forecaster said: “A rapidly deepening area of low pressure, named Storm Doris, is expected to move quickly east across the UK during Thursday 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.”
