  • Waterford weather warning increased to ORANGE as Storm Diana approaches

As part of the yellow warning, the Met Office said large waves would pose a "danger to life" along coastal areas in south-west England and Wales on Thursday.

MET Eireann have predicted more heavy rain and strong winds with gusts reaching up to 130km/h for Wednesday.

The Yellow Warning covers the period between 3am and 2pm tomorrow (Thursday).

It comes after heavy rain and winds in parts of the country this morning led to traffic delays and the temporary suspension of services at Dublin Port.

Britain is braced for a "major change" in the weather today as Storm Diana threatens travel disruption, power cuts and a chance of injuries from strong winds on Wednesday and Thursday across the country.

The rest of the whales were euthanised due to their deteriorating condition and the remote, hard access to the location. Meanwhile, on Sunday, 10 pygmy killer whales were found stranded at Ninety Mile Beach on the North Island.

Storm Diana, which follows a recent cold and sunny spell in the United Kingdom, comes as hundreds of flights have been delayed and cancelled after thick fog descended on the South East.

Although mild, it will become very windy everywhere, with gales or severe gales affecting much of the north and west. Rain is likely everywhere, heaviest over Scotland and Northern Ireland.

"If this occurs, gusts of 70-80 miles per hour could be seen, mainly in exposed locations, bringing increased likelihood of more significant disruption".

Storm Diana, named by Portugal's IPMA weather service, is now threatening the Azores. Winds will also turn west to southwesterly across Northern Ireland and western Scotland later, transferring the main focus for strong winds here, then finally to northern Scotland through the evening. "Even away from these areas, we're expecting a very windy start of the day".

"Friday will see further showers with strong southwesterly winds gradually easing to a moderate southerly and the further outlook to the weekend indicates continued unsettled conditions with rain at times".
