Amber weather warnings have been issued for the region by the Met Office ahead of forecast high winds and torrential rain on Tuesday evening.

The conditions could affect travel, including on the roads and railways, with possible restrictions on bridges.

It will be followed by Brian, Caroline, Dylan and Eleanor and has generated the first amber weather warning for wind for more than seven months.

Storm Aileen, the first storm of the year, is set to batter the United Kingdom with winds of up 75 miles per hour, the Met Office has warned.

A status yellow weather warning for all of Munster as well as counties Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow and Galway remains in place until midnight.

Gusts up to around 75mph could also be possible in exposed locations such as the coast and hills in these areas.

Storm Aileen is the first storm to be named since this season names were released last week.

John Fryer, from Transport for Greater Manchester Transport, said: "We advise all passengers to take extra care tonight and tomorrow when you're out and about, no matter what form of transport you use".

THE MET Office has issued an amber weather warning for parts of mid and north Wales tonight - warning that Storm Aileen could bring gusts of 75mph.

Met Office Deputy Meteorologist Chris Tubbs said: "This system originated well north in the Atlantic Ocean, independent of the current Caribbean hurricanes".

The centre of the depression will track eastwards from Ireland across central Britain on Tuesday evening and overnight, bringing heavy rain, but there will also be some particularly strong winds to the south of the low centre.

On Monday, flooding hit motorways, roads and railways in the north of England during morning rush hour.

The warning for Cheshire is due to come into force at 8pm with winds expected to reach 50-60mph across the county.
