Status orange wind warning issued for parts of the country

Storm Brian Latest GEFS MSLP panel for 6am Sat

A "weather bomb", is forecast to batter the British Isles over the weekend, bringing heavy rain and gale force winds, becoming the second named storm of the season.

Met Éireann's national weather advisory for the wind and rain remains at yellow level, warning of gusts of over 110km/h from Friday onwards.

"Those wind speeds can cause impacts to transport and power supplies, and the potential for risky waves also brings risks to coastal routes and communities, as well as the potential for flooding of homes".

Weather Company forecaster Dave Reynolds said "Brian" could also cause blackouts.

Some transport disruption is likely across the warning area, with delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport.

The storm - which could bring gusts of wind of up to 70mph (112kmph) - is likely to hit parts of south-west Ireland in the early hours of Saturday morning.

"This storm is taking a different path which mean areas that did not see much wind or rain from Ophelia - the Midlands and southern England - will be deal with the brunt of the wind".

Will Fiorentina continue the fight?
Another 16 goals brought Lorenzo Insigne, 13 goals went from Jose Callejon and 11 from Marek Hamšík. Forecasts Bookmakers consider Napoli as the main favorite - the coefficient for the victory of the hosts is 1.28.

"At the moment, we don't expect the same level of impacts for the United Kingdom", he said.

The gusts could bring more power cuts after Ophelia left 50,000 people in the United Kingdom and 170,000 in Ireland without power, and could also cause flooding and large waves.

Spokesman Grahame Madge said: "Dramatic waves could pose a threat to life and there will be quite hazardous conditions along the seafront".

Storms are named alphabetically in the United Kingdom and Ireland and Storm Brian will follow September's Storm Aileen.

"These are expected to coincide with high tides, leading to locally risky conditions".

Brian will move across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland into Saturday. Thousands of people were also left without water and power.
