A yellow Met Office warning for strong winds in association with Storm Jocelyn, leading to possible disruption to travel and utilities remains in place today until around 3pm.

Strong winds in association with Storm Jocelyn are continuing across northern parts of the UK into this afternoon, but gradually easing from the west.

Winds are widely expected to gust 55-65 mph, with a few exposed locations and over high ground possibly seeing in excess of 70 mph.

Gusts of 55-65 mph are fairly typical for a winter storm across these areas, but following the impacts caused by Storm Isha resilience is expected to be lower and it may also hamper any ongoing recovery and repair efforts.
