Met Éireann warns that Storm Diana will lash country with rain and high winds

A "major change" in the UK's weather is expected in the coming days as Storm Diana sweeps in from the Atlantic. This could be accompanied by winds of up to 70mph.

Diana, named by the IPMA Portuguese weather service, will also bring local flooding to some areas of Ireland tomorrow, as well as northern parts of the UK.

"It will drop back quite quickly again - while it won't be back to very cold temperatures, there is a risk of frost later in the week as we head to more typical weather".

A spokesman for The Met Office said: "A very unsettled spell of weather is expected, with strong winds, combined with widespread and in places heavy rain".

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.

New Tariffs Could Hit Laptops, iPhones, Trump Says
He said in the interview his tariffs could impact Apple products imported from China, including iPhones and laptops. And he's also ready to raise the import fees on items already taxed from 10 percent to 25 percent.

Dry in many places at first tonight, but spells of wet and windy weather will spread from the southwest later.

He said: "We have a yellow warning for wind in the west of the United Kingdom for today and tomorrow. The extensive warning doesn't quite include the whole of Fife, but it is for part of Fife and big swathes of the east coast right up to Dundee".

Severe rainfall will affect other parts of the United Kingdom, with the storm expected to bring between 60mm and 80mm of rain.

"Accumulations of up to 50mm (2in) are likely on high ground".

Some rain showers are forecast for Tuesday, but the more severe wet and windy weather will push in from the south west tomorrow.

"On Friday this low, which has joined with Diana, will move towards Scotland, winds won't be as strong as on Wednesday or Thursday but it will still be breezy".
