The Met Office has released weather warnings for wind and rain this morning, with Irish forecasters having named Storm Betty as the system whips up severe conditions.
Met Office Chief Meteorologist Jason Kelly said: “Friday and Saturday will see unseasonably wet and windy conditions for much of the UK.
“While Storm Betty will have higher impacts in Ireland, exposed Irish Sea coasts of the UK could see gusts in excess of 70mph, with around 50mph more widely.
“Storm Betty is also bringing some large accumulations of rainfall for the time of year, with some spots of Northern Ireland seeing around 80mm of rain, though between 15-25mm is expected more widely.
“Parts of Scotland could see similarly high accumulations, especially over higher ground.”
