Storm Gladys is expected to bring a mix of sunshine, high winds and potentially wintry showers to Coventry and Warwickshire.
The Met Office has reported that the last storm is expected to hit our area on Thursday.
Nationally, according to the Mirror, it could bring torrential downpours and high winds, as well as snow in some areas – but it’s likely to be less severe in Coventry and Warwickshire.

According to the Met Office forecast for our area over the next few days, Thursday 24th February is expected to see Storm Gladys bring much colder weather.
On top of that, the latest storm, which comes in the wake of Dudley, Eunice and Franklin, will see it bring windy showers, possibly becoming wintry on the hills.
Winds are not expected to reach 50 mph during Storm Franklin yesterday (February 21), which knocked down trees, nor the 60 mph gusts that Storm Eunice brought to our area on Friday (February 18).
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “As Storm Franklin clears the UK and enters the near mainland this afternoon, windy conditions will gradually ease and showers will become fewer, leaving dry, sunny weather for many.
“However, a band of rain and strong winds will reach the northwest overnight and this weather front will move south and east through Tuesday, fading as it does.
“Thursday is potentially the coldest day of the week with the onset of frost for some. High winds and heavy rain continue to move south and east across the country, clearing southeastern parts of the country. England at lunchtime.
“Winter showers are again expected mainly over the northern hills, but there could be snow at low levels at times.”
