Storm Eleanor on the way

Forecasters say some coastal areas could be affected by large waves as it combines with a period of high tides.

The storm is expected to pass quickly through the emerald isle before hitting Britain, where winds can be expected to hit 80mph.

An amber wind warning, valid from 19:30 GMT on Tuesday, has been issued for much of Northern Ireland.

Flying debris could lead to injuries or danger to life, while some damage to buildings is likely, it has said.

A yellow weather warning been issued for the North East, as parts of the country are to experience wind gusts of up to 80 miles per hour overnight.

Later this afternoon they will also be looking to issue Flood Warnings for areas along the coast where we forecast potential flooding of properties.

Bryan Angers punt was fielded deep by New Orleans Tommylee Lewis, and special-teams captain Josh Robinson stripped the ball loose. The Bucs went 95 yards from their own 5-yard line without a timeout in less than two minutes.

Gusts of up to 53mph are expected to batter Blackpool when Storm Eleanor arrives, and forecasters from the Met Office said there is a 'small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown on to sea fronts, roads, and coast properties, along western and southern coasts'.

"The unsettled theme continues throughout this week, with further spells of rain moving across the United Kingdom from the west as many return to work on Tuesday, and there will again be some snow over the high ground in Scotland", said Paul Gundersen, the Met Office's chief forecaster.

"If you're travelling, please check your route before setting off and don't drive through flood water". "It could remain more unsettled in the south".

Vince Crane, of the AA, advised drivers to take extra care in the worsening conditions.

The Environment Agency is expecting to issue flood alerts too, ahead of those high spring tides.
