Chief Forecaster's assessment

The strongest winds will reach the west early on Thursday, extending east through the morning. Winds will start to ease in the west later in the morning and then all parts by late afternoon/evening.


Snow showers will turn increasingly frequent and heavy across large parts Scotland and Northern Ireland during the evening.
