Met Eireann issues its highest weather warning for Ireland

Hurricane Ophelia will cause temperatures in parts of the United Kingdom to reach 25C over the weekend and into next week, according to BBC News.

School children across Donegal could be left without school transport on Monday if Met Éireann increases its weather warning to status red for the county.

Met Eireann had issued a nationwide weather alert but this has been upgraded to a Status Red in these countries.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: "The east side of the country certainly benefiting from some warmer temperatures into the weekend and at the start of next week".

'Temperatures could reach 21 or 22 degrees anywhere from the Midlands to the southeast.

'By Monday, it all changes as Hurricane Ophelia arrives from the south west. In September 1961 Hurricane Debbie tore past the west coast of Ireland with devastating impact.

'As Ophelia moves up north, she will bring heavy rain across northern Ireland and Scotland.

Areas from Northumberland down to Middlesbrough are covered by the warning, which is now in place for between midnight and 8pm on Tuesday.

'The rest of the week will see heavy rain nearly every day but winds will be much lighter in the south'.

The tropical storm is now making its way across the Atlantic Ocean as a category 1 hurricane with winds of up to 100mph.

Meteorologist Joan Blackburn says that there will be "very severe winds, which are likely to bring down some trees and cause some structural damage to buildings".
