Weather warning for gale force winds

Met Éireann issues three new weather warnings as Ireland braces itself for Storm Gareth

Multiple yellow "be aware" weather warnings covering Northern Ireland, England, Wales and parts of western Scotland will remain in force throughout today and into Wednesday.

Forecasters are warning that the storm, which is due to make landfall around midday, will batter the country with heavy rain and "damaging gusts" of up to 130kmh.

"The temperature on Tuesday night could briefly dip to around 2/3C but then it looks like it will get warmer again as the week goes on".

Earlier on Monday morning, the Met Office updated a yellow status weather warning of wind for Northern Ireland to reflect the increased likelihood of 80mph gales.

The met office warned the storm could bring disruption to bus and train services and delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed roads.

Heavy rain is also forecast for later on tonight and into tomorrow morning.

Police teams have issued travel warnings and advice with Storm Gareth bringing treacherous and risky driving conditions in Calderdale.

Sea fronts and coastal communities could also be affected by spray and large waves. Winds will gradually ease during the afternoon.

Met Eireann state "It will be unsettled through much of this week, with a spell of potentially disruptive winds later tomorrow, Tuesday, into Wednesday, especially in the northwest".

There could be 50mm to 60mm of rainfall over higher ground in Cumbria.

This comes after Storm Freya battered the Sussex coast recently.

As Storm Gareth spreads across the rest of the United Kingdom, it could cause travel disruption as well as danger to life due to flying debris, falling trees and large waves.
