The Met Office has warned that severe gales will hit parts of the UK on Friday night.
Storm Hannah is due to make land tomorrow morning, bringing strong winds and heavy rains to Ireland and southern parts of the UK.
The harsh weather will follow a fairly settled week in Ireland.
As of Thursday morning the Republic’s capital Dublin had seen temperatures in the low teens Celsius and light patches of rain.
When Friday comes a weather front rising up from the Atlantic will bring with it rain and wind.
Earlier this week the weather agency warned of potential flooding, with as much as 40mm of rain to fall with a 24 hour period.
