A Weather Warning Has Been Issued For Dublin Tomorrow

A Weather Warning Has Been Issued For Dublin Tomorrow

Weather warnings have been issued for this weekend, sparking fears Storm Brian will batter the United Kingdom with 70mph gales and severe rainfall.

A yellow weather alert said: "A spell of strong southwesterly winds is expected".

Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts warned that heavy rain would be falling on already saturated ground and could cause flooding and affect properties.

Met Eireann say there is a high risk of flooding over the weekend especially in costal regions with high tides expected.

He says that while the GFS charts show storm Brian's track staying just south of the Midlands, meaning the Midlands could escape the worst of it, but would still see gusts of possibly 100kph, the OPC model however places the Midlands directly in the path the storm, meaning that wind speeds could gust closer to 120kph.

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

Opioid indictment of Chinese nationals tied to North Dakota
Officials say American customers could purchase pure fentanyl and other risky drugs online, directly from Chinese factories. The indictments are the first of their kind and were returned by grand juries in Mississippi , Oregon and North Dakota.

Wales, north-west England and most of southern England are likely to be affected, while Northern Ireland, which took the brunt of Ophelia, could face heavy rain from Thursday onwards.

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

Storm Brian is set to batter the United Kingdom this weekend with 50 to 80 miles per hour winds, just days after Storm Ophelia.

"The first and most significant land-based impacts will be in the south-west of Ireland, hence the amber warning from Met Éireann".

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: 'Dramatic waves could pose a threat to life and there will be quite hazardous conditions along the seafront'.

Gusts of up to 50mph are expected to bring big waves off our coast too and we're told it could be particularly unsafe around high tide. Thousands of people were also left without water and power.
