The south-west of England is predicted to be the worst-affected with severe waves on the coast. Tipperary and the entire country from 10pm Friday (tonight, October 20) for 24 hours and mean wind speeds of up to 65kph. People need to take extra care'.

Storm Brian is supposed to hit areas of the United Kingdom tonight (20 October) and will pass through over the weekend.

High tides batter the coastline at Ness Point, Lowestoft.

Meanwhile, the HSE in the south-east says preparations are in place to react to the current and impending "Yellow" rainfall and "Orange" wind weather warnings associated with Storm Brian.

He added: "Confusion, concern and ultimately ... a lack of confidence" of the United States permeates through the region. Reed called on Trump to pursue diplomacy, warning of disastrous consequences if the situation deteriorates.

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

A Met Office meteorologist, Craig Snell, said people should beware of venturing outdoors onto coastal walkways over the weekend.

"Storm Ophelia was listed as a red warning, with gusts of up to 150kph predicted", she pointed out.

"Gusts exceeding 50 miles per hour are expected widely within the warning area, with gusts of around 70 miles per hour along exposed coastal areas".

The next one after Brian will be called Caroline.

The second named storm of the year, caused by a "weather bomb" of low pressure in the Atlantic, will bring gusts of between 50mph (80kph) and 70mph (113kph). That low pressure then sucks in more air from the surrounding area, causing the system to spin faster and faster.

As a result, this causes the depression within the storm to rise very quickly and increase its rotation, further deepening the pressure and making the storm even more powerful.
