England and Wales will be battered by the worst storm in years with heavy rain and hurricane-force winds expected tonight and tomorrow morning, forecasters warn.
Ireland will escape the brunt of the storm which is predicted to track to the south of the coastline before hitting Britain.
“The storm isn’t going to hit us,” Met Éireann forecaster Deirdre Lowe said. “Winds will in fact become more moderate this evening before picking up again tomorrow, but tomorrow will be less windy than today.”
The Met Office described the storm as not one “you would see every year”, and said the expected wind strengths would be similar to storms in March 2008, January 2007 and October 2000.
It gave a lesser yellow warning, meaning ”be aware”, for the rest of Wales and England up to the border with Scotland.http://www.youtube.com/v/dA1nnfIt7N0&autoplay=1
