Amber warning of snow issued for Ayrshire ahead of storm Doris
Heavy snow is expected on Thursday. Accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are likely quite widely with 20 to 30 cm falling on hills above 300 metres. This will lead to disruption to transport and perhaps power supplies.

As storm Doris moves eastwards across central parts of the UK on Thursday a spell of heavy snow is expected on its northern flank. There is some uncertainty over the track of Doris and therefore over the extent of snowfall, but confidence is now higher for disruptive snow to affect the amber area.
