After the damage, loss and destruction that was caused by the weather phenomenon storm Ophelia (which seemed to avoid Cavan for the most part), is the impending storm Brian going to wreak havoc or are we going to be counting our lucky stars once again this weekend? Jade Pepper checks it out...

The latest update from Met Éireann Reports predicts that the worst of what Storm Brian has to give will happen late tonight (Friday), October 20, and into the early hours of tomorrow morning (Saturday). It's due to hit Ireland at midnight and continue for around a 12-hour period.

Orange status weather warnings are in place for the already hard-hit counties of Wexford, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Waterford. The coasts of Mayo and Galway are also under a Status Orange warning. They can expect gusts of between 110kph and 130kph during a 12-hour period from 6am on Saturday until 6pm that evening.

A Status Yellow wind warning has been issued for the entire country, including Co Cavan, from 10pm Friday night for 24 hours and mean wind speeds of 65kph will again batter Ireland, with gusts up to 110kph at times. Motorists are advised to drive with caution.

Meanwhile, here is the latest forecast for Ulster, including Cavan.


Tonight will be wet, with local flooding. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees in fresh to strong and gusty south-easterly winds. Heavy rain will be followed by scattered showers.


Tomorrow, Saturday will be a windy day with heavy and squally showers. Highest temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees in strong to gale-force and gusty northwest winds, especially in the afternoon, as Storm Brian track eastwards into the Irish Sea.
