Greater Manchester could be in the path of the latest storm to hit the British Isles this winter as storm Doris crosses the region tomorrow.
The Met Office have issued an amber warning for strong winds across the region.
The Met Office’s amber weather warning alerts people that ‘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’.
The forecast for the region is that it will turn windy from the south overnight with cloud and rain, heavy and at times persistent, gradually spreading north-eastwards, turning to snow at times, mostly over higher ground.
Thursday will be very windy with severe gales likely for a time along with rain at first, clearing to showers later.
