Storm Irene is heading our way and it looks like a beast
You might want to tie down your garden furniture. Storm Irene is coming.
BBC weather forecaster Barra Best has warned us to watch out for flying debris this evening as the newly named Storm Irene makes its way up from Portugal.
It looks like a beast.

Met Éireann are predicting, "Wet and very windy tonight with persistent and at times heavy rain, in strong to gale force and gusty southerly winds with some gusts of 90 or 100km/h in exposed places. Overnight lows of 9 or 10 degrees Celsius."
There is good news, however.
The heavy rain is expected to clear early on Tuesday and leave a bright and sunny day, with temperatures hitting a pleasant 16 degrees Celsius.
