Storm Jocelyn will follow in Isha’s wake as the second named storm to hit the region in as many days.

A yellow warning for wind is in place across the North East from midday on Tuesday (January 23) until 3pm on Wednesday.

A spell of strong winds are expected leading to some localised disruption on the transport network.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington, said: “Although this system will be a step down relative to Storm Isha, with the damage and clean up still underway, we could potentially see more impacts from Storm Jocelyn.”

The fresh yellow weather warning was issued on Monday lunchtime.

Jocelyn is the UK’s tenth named storm in five months, and marks only the second time in a UK storm season that the letter J has been reached in the alphabet.

The UK has already been hit by Agnes in September 2023; Babet in October; Ciaran and Debi in November; Elin, Fergus and Gerrit in December; and now Henk, Isha and Jocelyn in January.

It comes as the impacts of Storm Isha are still being felt.

A pensioner has died and thousands of homes remain without power winds reached speeds of up to 99mph in Northumberland.

Transport services have been disrupted with roads closed, rail lines blocked and flights diverted, while dozens of schools were shut on Monday.
