Weather warnings have been issued for this weekend, sparking fears Storm Brian will batter the United Kingdom with 70mph gales and severe rainfall.
A Yellow Weather Warning has been issued for the entire south east for the whole of Saturday.
It warned some coastal areas in the United Kingdom could be affected by large waves, with the potential for flooding.
A yellow weather warning for rain has been issued across the region, valid from 3pm to midnight.
Some transport disruption is likely, and short term loss of power and other services is also possible.
The storm is forming over the Atlantic on Thursday and will arrive on the west coast of Ireland on Friday night as the nation recovers from the affects of Hurricane Ophelia. At the moment, we don't expect the same level of impacts for the UK.
