Between 6am and 10pm Storm Ali will bring a spell of very windy weather with gusts of 50-60 mph possible inland. The following advice has been issued on the MET Office website:
- Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible

Police are warning drivers to take extra care on the region's roads after more snow fell overnight, leading to a number of accidents.
A number of roads are closed:
- A537 Cat and Fiddle route closed due to snow between Bull-Hill-Lane (Macclesfield) and A54 (Buxton)
- A54 closed due to snow between the Rose and Crown (Allgreave) and A537 Cat and Fiddle Route

Drivers are being warned to take care this morning after the Met Office issued a weather warning for fog.
Fog patches are likely to become more widespread into this morning, with the visibility falling below 100 metres in places.
Although it will thin throughout Thursday, the Met Office says some patches may persist into the afternoon in the west of the warning area.
It could mean journey times are longer than expected.
A Yellow Weather Warning has been issued on the Isle of Man for later in the week. Ronaldsway Airport MET Office say snow will accumulate at all levels on Thursday and Friday, with temperatures below zero.
The gale force winds and hail will continue into Saturday and Sunday.
Strong winds, accompanied by heavy rain, will move eastwards across the UK on Monday.
Gales or even severe gales are likely around exposed coasts and high ground in the west and north on Monday morning.
The public should be aware of the potential for travel disruption from the strong winds as well as standing water on the roads and reduced visibility from spray and driving rain.
The Met Office has released a warning for heavy rain across parts of Lancashire and Cumbria.
Thundery downpours are expected to develop this afternoon, lasting into the evening. The Met Office say the public should be aware of the risk of spray on roads and local surface water flooding.
The Met office has released a red weather warning for strong wind.
The winds will mainly hit the coastal fringe from Formby Point all the way up to Morecambe Bay and around to Barrow-in-Furness, along with an inland section of Lancashire from the Fylde eastwards as far as Preston.
