Strong winds and heavy rain are set to lash York and North Yorkshire as Storm Isha makes itself felt tomorrow.
The Met Office has issued updated amber weather warnings for wind affecting our region, running from 6pm tomorrow (Sunday, 21 January) to 9am on Monday.
That is followed by yellow warnings for wind between 4pm on Tuesday and midday on Wednesday.
There will be showers too, but the rain is not forecast to be heavy in York and North Yorkshire.
The amber warning indicates a risk to life in coastal areas from large waves and debris being blown inland.
It also mean potential power cuts and loss of mobile phone signal in affected areas, while roads and bridges are likely to be shut and rail and bus services could face delays and cancellations.
National Rail said the storm could well affect train services: “Speed restrictions are likely to be implemented on many routes for safety reasons on Sunday evening, and overnight into Monday morning.”

Storm Isha is the ninth named storm to hit the UK since the season began in September.
Each storm is named when it poses a risk to people and they are given names beginning with consecutive letters of the alphabet.
The record number of named storms in one year is when the Met Office began the practice in 2015/16, with Storm Katie being the eleventh and final storm of the season.
If there are three more named storms between next week and August, this year will mark a new record.
