Storm Brian: Strong winds set to hit British Isles

Ophelia to hit Donegal this afternoon- experts say from circa 3pm

Storms in the United Kingdom and Ireland are named alphabetically and Brian will follow September's Storm Aileen - Hurricane Ophelia was named by the National Hurricane Centre in the U.S., so does not follow the same pattern.

It has warned of strong winds causing massive tidal waves in coastal areas, with transport disruption and power outages likely.

A yellow weather warning for wind has been issued in affected areas, valid from 4am to midnight on Saturday.

While not as severe as recent extra-tropical storm Ophelia, orange warnings may be put in place along the south coast, with strong low pressure tracking into Munster from the west-southwest and continuing through the country to reach the central Irish Sea by Saturday morning.

"Through Saturday, there will be blustery rain and widespread wind gusts of 50-60 miles per hour across southern Ireland, Wales and parts of England", AccuWeather meteorologist Steve D Travis told media.

Dave Reynolds, forecaster for The Weather Company, said: "This storm is going to be large enough to affect the whole of the UK".

He has to continue to work very hard to improve himself, in the physical and tactical aspect, but he is working very well. Italy is my homeland, so once I have had some good experiences, important and life-changing experiences, I'll be back.

It warned some coastal areas in the United Kingdom could be affected by large waves, with the potential for flooding.

Forecasters have confirmed that a number of counties around the country are set to experience heavy, thundery rain both today and tomorrow.

The Met Office added that an explosive cyclogenesis, or weather bomb, was forecast to take place which is caused when pressure drops by 24 millibars in 24 hours.

"These are expected to coincide with high tides, leading to locally unsafe conditions". The Met Office, in collaboration with Ireland's Met √Čireann, began naming storms in 2015-16 to raise awareness and prevent confusion between different storms.

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

On Monday, three people in Ireland died in the storm.
