Yet another storm will approach from the Atlantic Ocean today, delivering a shot of rainfall and strong winds across the entire region tonight into Saturday. Once again, Ireland and all of the United Kingdom will be at risk for localized flooding problems as rainfall up to 30 mm (1.18 inches).
Strong winds will batter the region with sustained winds over 65 kph (40 mph) at times along with gusts upwards of 95 kph (60 mph). This may be the biggest threat from this storm.
The area at the biggest risk from these strong winds will be across the southwestern United Kingdom, including Wales, as well as southwestern Ireland.

Large waves have pounded the southern coast of Ireland and coastal areas of southern and southwest England. The communities of Cornwall and Plymouth have been some of the hardest hit by flooding so far. More high waves will accompany this storm with the largest waves expected on Saturday and Saturday night when heights over 10 m (33 feet) are expected.
