Weather warning in place for Co Armagh as Storm Doris arrives

High winds and heavy rain is set so sweep across county Armagh on Thursday as the Met Office issue a yellow weather warning.

The Met Office are saying Storm Doris will bring the ferocious weather in off the Atlantic in the next 24 hours.

The storm will be at its worst just after it passes across Northern Ireland but it will bring those strong winds and persistent rainfall, which in turn brings their own problems.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “We have got a fairly active area of low pressure coming in from the Atlantic.

“It is strengthening as it moves eastwards to the UK.”

A weather warning for snow is also in place for Scotland.

Storm Doris is expected to move on quickly, with the worst of the weather gone by Thursday evening.

Further Atlantic gusts will bring more rain and wind through the weekend and into next week but they won’t be as bad as Thursday’s offering.
