Storm Doris

Storm Doris has now passed over the UK. The next named storm to hit the UK, will be Storm Ewan.

Welcome to the not-so-offical webpage of Storm Doris! Storm Doris hit the UK on Thursday 23rd February 2017 and brought with it damaging rain, snow and winds to large parts of England, Scotland and Wales. The storm was predicted by the Met Office due to the development of a deep low pressure system over the Atlantic ocean in the days leading up to 23rd February 2017. Strong winds with gusts of up to 95mph were recorded and heavy rain battered parts of central England. Significant snowfall fell across the higher ground of northern England and much of Scotland. Due to Storm Doris's strength, the Met Office issued an "Amber Severe Weather Warning". Now that Storm Doris has passed over the UK, the next named storm to hit the UK will be Storm Ewan.
