Storm Corrie brings second weekend weather warning to NI

A new weather warning is in place as the second storm in just a few days is forecast to batter parts of Northern Ireland.

Storm Corrie is the name given to this latest low pressure system, following Storm Malik which caused disruption in Northern Ireland yesterday (Saturday) with fallen trees and ferry cancellations.

The Met Office is predicting that after a quite bright start this morning, rain will spread east during the afternoon, followed by scattered showers later.

There will be clear spells and blustery showers, with these turning wintry over hills.

The weather warning is presently in place throughout tomorrow morning.

The public has been warned of potential disruption to travel and power supplies.
