Strong winds will continue through much of today.Storm Eleanor is now over the North Sea and although winds are not expected to be as strong as during Tuesday evening and last night, it has left a swath of strong winds in its wake.Some delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport are expected with some journeys taking longer. Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges are also possible, and there is also the potential for some short term loss of power supplies.This is an update to correct a technical error which placed the tick in the incorrect box in the warnings matrix. The level of expected impact is low to reflect the general decrease in winds speeds.

Chief Forecaster

Storm Eleanor is now over the North Sea and will continue to move slowly away eastwards through today. Although winds are not expected to be as strong as Tuesday evening and last night it has left a swath of strong winds in its wake. Gusts on Wednesday morning are expected to reach 45 to 50 mph in places inland while along the coasts gusts as high as 65 mph are likely. Winds will slowly ease from the west through the day although a second peak in winds speeds is expected across Northern Ireland for a time during the mid to late afternoon.
