For commuters wondering just how bad it is - or is going to get - there is an amber warning for wind and a weaker yellow warning for snow in the Harrogate district today.So far train disruption seems to have been minor on the Harrogate line.Other parts of the country are certainly getting it worse than here so far but conditions are expected to deteriorate further around mid-afternoon today, Thursday before clearing mid-evening.

So is it going to continue to be what used to be called " squally" or will Storm Doris actually cause major disruption in our area at all?
