Met Éireann have issued a status orange weather warning for the whole of the country, ahead of the latest storm to cross over Ireland.

Storm Brian is set to hit Ireland today and Met Éireann have put a status orange weather warning in place.

The warning is a National weather warning, with forecasts of heavy rain and strong winds. It will first take effect in the South of the country, with heavy rain early morning and strong winds gradually building up as the afternoon approaches. The strong winds and heavy rains will then quickly spread across the rest of the country.

A status orange wind warning has been issued for coastal counties such as Cork, Waterford, Wexford, Kerry, Galway and Mayo. Met Éireann warns of strong gusts of wind up to 130km/hr and speeds ranging from 65-80 km/hr. These winds will run from West to Southwest and will veer northwest.

The rest of the country has been issued with a status yellow wind warning, with gusts expected to reach up to 110 km/hr and speeds of up to 65km/hr.

The warning comes as the ESB are still battling to return power to over 50,000 homes, who have been without since Storm Ophelia earlier in the week.
