Flooding expected across Co Armagh tonight with Storm Brian due on Saturday

The strong winds will be accompanied by heavy rain, bringing a risk of local flooding.

There's a "good chance" the storm will be named by the Irish Met or the Met Office during the next 24 hours, Mr Roys added.

Now officials are urging us to stay away from the coast and to be prepared as the county anticipates four-metre high swells.

Although the experts are advising that we're not quite out of the woods just yet, it seems that for most parts of Donegal the worst is over from Storm Ophelia, and in truth, it wasn't anything as bad as we might have expected in a county where we are not unfamiliar with strong winds.

Storm Brian, unlike Hurricane Ophelia, which left a trail of destruction across Ireland earlier this week, is set to bombard England.

This forces very strong winds to emerge from the area of low pressure when dry air from high above the Earth cascades into an area of low pressure.

Hurricane Ophelia was named by the National Hurricane Centre in the USA, so does not follow the same pattern.

A yellow weather warning for wind remains in Northern Ireland, southern and central Scotland, north England and north west Wales on Tuesday afternoon.

"Some coastal routes and communities are likely to be affected by large waves, with potential for flooding of properties".

Storm Brian, described as a rapidly deepening depression in the mid-Atlantic, is expected to fill as it tracks over parts of Ireland overnight Friday and early on Saturday.

"Short term loss of power and other services is also possible".

And there's also a Twitter account that's already dedicated to it.
