An orange weather warning, the second highest level of alert, remains in place for gale-force winds today.

Yesterday Storm Eleanor brought 70 mph gusts across the Channel Islands.

Islanders are urged to take care as high tides will see water come over the sea walls.

The morning's high tide at 7:51am could reach a height of 11.7m.

In Jersey, roads may be closed (again) this morning around areas including:

  • The Avenue
  • Five Mile Rd
  • Havre Des Pas
  • La Mare Slip
  • Rice Bowl Slip
  • Le Hurel Slip
  • Anneport
  • The area between St Aubin's and Beaumont

Officers are also advising islanders to avoid coastal car parks such as lay bys along Victoria Avenue and Le Perquage car park at Beaumont.

Headteachers from schools that reopen after the Christmas holidays today say they're happy for children to be dropped off a little later than usual to avoid congestion from road closures.

Meanwhile in Guernsey, islanders are once again urged to avoid driving along the West coast in the morning.
