Winds were expected to hit speeds of up to 70mph.

The warning is in effect in Galway from 5am on Friday morning until 1pm in the afternoon.

The warning of high winds gusting at up to gale force will last for the whole of Cornwall and all but the very North East of Devon - over Exmoor - until 8pm today.

The Rathlin ferry service has been cancelled because of the weather.

"The duty forecaster here in Glasnevin and the chief forecaster in the UK Met Office name a storm when Status Orange or Status Red wind thresholds are expected", Cusack said.

"These gusts of winds will be ranging between 45 to 55mph as high as perhaps 65mph across the northwest of Scotland for instance over the higher ground of Wales swell".

The low pressure area will deepen rapidly as it approaches the north west of Ireland and north-west Scotland on Friday morning.

Flood warnings have also been issued by authorities in Dorset while several flood alerts are in place across the south west and central England.

This is also sometimes known as a weather bomb.

Met Éireann is warning of gusts of up to 130 kilometres an hour in counties Galway, Mayo and Donegal from tomorrow morning.
