Brian Storm Is Coming To The UK This Weekend!

Brian Storm Is Coming To The UK This Weekend!

Speaking with the Irish Independent, Met Eireann's John Eagleton said that Storm Brian will not possess almost as much destructive capability as Ophelia but that it will "hit the United Kingdom". Weatherquest forecaster Adam Dury said: "The weather bomb actually happened on Thursday night but we won't see the stormy conditions until the early hours of Saturday".

The worst effected areas include Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath, with rain expected to reach between 30 and 50mm.

"At the moment, Storm Brian is nothing to worry about here in Ireland".

The Environment Agency's Alison Baptiste has warned the public to stay safe along the coast where there is set to be strong winds, large waves and some over-topping of coastal defences.

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.

"In particular, we are prepared for, and will continue to monitor, the potential impact of possible localised and/or coastal flooding and local road diversions may be required", said a HSE statment today.

Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said in a statement Marino will "need to address the accusations" during his confirmation hearings. "If I think it's 1 percent negative to doing what we want to do, I will make a change", Trump said .

The south-west of England is predicted to be the worst-affected with severe waves on the coast.

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

Storm Brian's arrival comes as 50,000 customers remain without power due to Storm Ophelia.

"These are expected to coincide with high tides, leading to locally unsafe conditions".

"Weather bomb" may sound dramatic, especially in the wake of recent storm coverage, but it is a technical term, referring to low pressure system whose central pressure falls rapidly.

The Met Office and Met Éireann do not rename the remnants of storms that have moved across the Atlantic, if they have already been named.
