Weather forecast after Storm Jocelyn brought 50mph winds to northern Lincolnshire

Just hours after Storm Isha brought some very strong winds, Storm Jocelyn hit northern Lincolnshire with gusts reaching more than 50mph causing some train services to be cancelled.

A yellow weather warning was initially put in place until 3pm today, but this has now been removed in our region as the winds begin to ease.

As of 10am, East Midlands Railway train services running between Grimsby and Lincoln have been cancelled due to a fallen tree obstructing the line, with bus service replacements in operation.


An East Midlands Railway spokesperson said: “A fallen tree is obstructing the line and has damaged power cables so we are unable to run trains on our Leicester/ Lincoln/ Grimsby route between Lincoln and Grimsby. Buses will replace trains. We are sorry for the delay to your journey.”

Meanwhile, the Humber Bridge remains closed to high-sided and vulnerable vehicles this morning with winds in excess of 50mph reported on the crossing earlier.

The Met Office said: “Winds easing following the passage of Storm Jocelyn, although gale strength gusts likely persisting over the Pennines into the late afternoon. Bright or sunny for most, with isolated showers in the northwest dying off through the morning. Maximum temperature 10 °C.”

According to the official weather forecast, wind gusts in northern Lincolnshire are set to ease to around 20mph from 3pm onwards. The forecast is as follows:

  • 9am: Sunny, 10C, wind gusts 43mph
  • 10am-11am: Sunny, 10C, wind gusts 38mph
  • 12pm: Sunny intervals, 10C, wind gusts 35mph
  • 1pm: Sunny intervals, 10C, wind gusts 33mph
  • 2pm: Cloudy, 10C, wind gusts 30mph
  • 3pm: Sunny intervals, 10C, wind gusts 27mph
  • Looking ahead, the stormy gusts won’t be repeated tonight with the weather set to be much calmer this evening with light winds and clear skies. Temperatures will drop in the early hours, with frost possible in some places as they dip towards freezing.

    However, cloud will build towards dawn with more rain arriving from the west and winds will pick up again too as the day goes on but not to the levels seen during Storms Isha and Jocelyn. Temperatures will rise through Thursday too leading to a very mild night going into Friday, with lows of around 12 or 13C along with some showers, before dipping in the morning with highs of around 9C during the day along with sunny spells and a fresh breeze.
