Yellow wind warning
The MET office's warning of wind across Northern Ireland remains in place for Wednesday 3 January.
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 remove the warning from southern Scotland while including the whole of Northern Ireland. The level of expected impact has also been reduced from medium to low to reflect the general decrease in winds speeds.
The yellow warning is in place for County Antrim, County Armagh, County Fermanagh, County Londonderry, County Tyrone and County Down.
