There are weather warnings throughout the British Isles due to an impending storm called Barra. It is a low pressure area moving across the Atlantic that was in the middle of the ocean on Monday evening.

Weather forecasters forecast rainfall totals up to 50-70 liters of water per square meter. Blizzards are possible in the North West of Ireland. There will be high sea waves.
