The following Weather Advisory has been issued by Met Eireann at 14:00 hours Thursday, 19-Oct-2017
Met Éireann forecasters have elected to name Storm Brian this afternoon. This action was taken due to a potential risk of orange level winds developing in coastal regions of a number of counties in the west and southwest Friday night and on Saturday. A rapidly deepening depression in the mid-Atlantic (Storm Brian) is expected to fill as it tracks over parts of Ireland overnight Friday and early on Saturday.
In general, the winds in most parts of the country will not be as severe as on Monday. Yellow wind warnings are in effect countrywide, with Orange level warnings for coastal areas of the south and west. See warnings for further details. Various parts of the country will experience strong winds at different times during this period, with northern counties probably not encountering peak winds until Saturday afternoon.
