Recent updates suggest severe and damaging gale force winds are likely across Northern England and North-West England (Areas shaded purple) which is why I have decided to issue an extreme weather warning. Gusts in the region of 70-80mph are expected across this region through tonight and into the early hours of Friday morning, gusts of 85-90mph cannot be ruled out in exposed locations. If you are in this area you are advised not to travel unless absolutely necessary.

The South coast has also been issued with a weather warning, strong winds could coincide with high tides causing rough seas and minor coastal flooding, Gusts of up to 45mph are expected overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning.
