Storm Doris is set to bring wet, windy and wintry weather to the region.Read the full story ›
All forms of school transport in the Scottish Borders have been cancelled for tomorrow, when Storm Doris is expected to sweep through the region.
An Amber weather warning for snow covers the south of Scotland, and between 10 and 15cm of snow is expected.
Scottish Borders Council says local decisions on school closures will be announced in the morning.
If needed the Resilient Schools protocol will be used, which would see 21 rural primary schools closed, with only pupils within walking distance attending schools.
If this is implemented, parents will be notified directly by Groupcall message.
Some waste and recycling collections may be affected.
Drivers of high-sided vehicles, caravans and motorbikes are being urged to avoid using major roads, while Storm Doris batters the region.
Highways England has released a list of roads to avoid, including:
- M6 through Cumbria, between J36 and J45
- A66 Between M6 J40 - A1 (Scotch Corner)
- A69 Entire route

Storm Doris is bringing warnings of wet, windy and wintry weather tomorrow - with many of us being told to be prepared for very unsettled conditions.
Heavy snow is expected for northern England and southern Scotland.
Accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are likely quite widely in the 'amber warning area' with 20 to 30 cm falling on hills above 300 metres.
This will lead to disruption to transport and perhaps power supplies.
Heavy rain will clear to the south during the early hours, allowing for some sunshine to develop.
It will feel a little chillier than recently, though the winds will be lighter.
Maximum Temperature 9 °C.
Sunny spells and showers tomorrow will make way for Storm Doris on Thursday.Read the full story ›
