Hurricane Ophelia is set to pay Ireland a visit next week, after it sweeps across the Atlantic.

Gusts of up to 70mph and wet weather could batter Britain's shores as Hurricane Ophelia crosses the Atlantic Ocean in the coming days, despite other parts of the country basking in the heatwave approaching from Spain this weekend.

It is now a category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 85mph with some higher gusts.

Ophelia was moving to the northeast at 3 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour with higher gusts.
