Ireland's national forecaster, Met Eireann, has already issued one weather warning ahead of Storm Helene's arrival, and is expected to issue more this afternoon. It will continue to track northeastwards towards Ireland through the rest of today and Monday.

Strong winds are expected to batter the borough this week as Storm Helene edges closer.

Winds of up to 80mph could hit the county on Monday night, forecasters warned.

Storm Helene formed in the Azores last week.

That has now been updated and is in effect from 9pm on Monday to 6pm on Tuesday.

The weather expert warned the strongest winds will be felt across the south-west of England, Wales and the Midlands, before moving into parts of northern England as we go through the afternoon.

"By the time it reaches the United Kingdom we're looking at potential for 40 to 50mph gusts, with isolated chances of 55 to 60 miles per hour gusts on exposed high ground or coastal areas", Met Office spokesperson Nicola Maxi told i.

AA Ireland is warning motorists to exercise additional caution in the coming days as large amounts of rainfall are expected as the remnants of tropical Storm Helene pass over Ireland.

The storm would be expected to die out by Wednesday, Ms Smith said.

The gusty winds will be accompanied in places by heavy, squally showers.

By Thursday, heavy rain is expected, especially in western parts of Wales and the north-west of England.

"South to southwest winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/hr with guests of 90 to 110 km/hr, strongest in southern, western and northern coastal areas".

"The timing and development of both these systems remains uncertain, however, so please keep up to date with the warnings and forecasts".

Coral spokesman John Hill said: "With the threat of Hurricane Helene reaching the United Kingdom and following a flood of bets over the past couple of days, the odds have been cut on this month ending as the wettest September on record".
