Brian Storm Is Coming To The UK This Weekend!

Storm Brian UK weather warning issued as weather bomb set to hit Britain

A "weather bomb", is forecast to batter the British Isles over the weekend, bringing heavy rain and gale force winds, becoming the second named storm of the season.

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

CHECK the Met Office website for the latest weather warnings. So it's time to say goodbye to those sun hats.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for strong winds and potential flooding in parts of southern and western England and Wales on Saturday.

It is expected the powerful storm will bring winds in the region of 130kph at its peak but the worst of the weather will be experienced in the West, South West and the South East of the country.

In addition to the orange warning put in place, the rest of Irelands have been issued with a yellow weather warning for strong winds. The first and most significant land-based impacts will be in the south-west of Ireland, hence the amber warning from Met √Čireann.

'As we go through Saturday morning the strong southwesterly winds affecting the South and West will spread eastwards and slowly change direction as they will become westerly towards the end of the warning period.

Donald Trump Claims Increased UK Crime Is Due To Islamic Terror
This rise is due largely to the London and Manchester terror attacks, where the police recorded 294 attempted murder offences'. The number of homicides actually dropped 2 percent to 664, even with the terror-related killings in London and Manchester.

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

The devastation from Ophelia left 360,000 people without power which was a result of trees falling onto power lines.

Parts of the British coast have also taken early precautions in the form of sandbags and flood prevention stands.

Weather contingencies include the introduction of temporary speed restrictions due to high winds, which can blow trees and other debris onto railway lines and overhead power lines.

Possible rail disruptions caused by the storm have prompted Network Rail to urge people to die down loose objects in their gardens.

Midland Weather Channel's Cathal Nolan says he is now working off two weather models to track the storm, the GFS charts and the Ocean Prediction Center (A United States government run organisation).
