The aftermath of Storm Doris is due to bring a period of cold weather to Preston and Lancashire.

Met Office warnings begin from 6pm on Thursday evening as the high winds begin to drop – with icy temperatures creeping in.

The yellow weather warning is in place as temperatures drop rapidly during Thursday evening and into Friday morning.

The warning states: “Icy stretches will form on many untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths this evening, overnight and into Friday morning. In addition wintry showers could give 1-3 cm of snow in places, mainly on higher ground above 150 m.”

The warning for high winds ends around 8pm according to the Met Office.

Storm Doris has caused travel disruption on the railways and to minor roads in Preston.
