An Orange weather warning for Galway has been extended by Met Eireann until 5pm on Friday.

Power cuts, travel disruption and hard driving conditions are also predicted, with yellow weather warnings for wind covering Northern Ireland and western parts of Wales, England and Scotland throughout Friday.

The Met Office said 50-60mph gusts were likely on Friday "with the potential for gusts of 70-80mph around exposed coasts and hills". Coming into effect at 10:00pm, the warning will expire at 9:00am tomorrow morning in these counties. There is the risk of localised flooding, tricky conditions on the roads with surface water and spray.

"Additionally there is a concern for storm surge, coastal flooding, and overtopping of waves around coasts, especially Atlantic coasts, due to the coinciding high spring tides".
