Disruptions or cancellations possible
The weather is expected to cause some issues later.
The Steam Packet is warning this evening's Douglas to Heysham sailing, and its overnight return, could be subject to disruption or cancellation.
A final decision on that is due to be made by 5pm.
The shipping forecast says the wind could reach severe gale force nine overnight into tomorrow.
The weather forecast is for some sleet and snow to fall on higher ground locally later in the day also.
Sleet fell on the Mountain Road this morning, prompting the police to urge drivers to take care, although it was not deemed necessary to shut the route.
