Ali is getting stronger and stronger and at this rate, it looks like Ali could be even more powerful than the boxer as it keeps making its way towards Ireland.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Orange Wind Warning for 13 counties ahead of Ali coming to Ireland.

They are: Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Meath, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry

They say that: "storm Ali will track close to the west and northwest coast from the early hours of Wednesday morning until late afternoon.

"South to southwest winds veering westerly will increase to mean speeds between 65 and 80 km/h with gusts between 110 and 120 km/h for a time in some area.

"Winds strongest along Atlantic Coasts at first and later in the morning extending further east."

The warning was issued at 9am on Tuesday morning and the warning will come into play on Wednesday morning at 5am until 1pm Wednesday afternoon.

But, much like the Beast From The East, Storm Ophelia and Storm Desmond, you can expect many more weather warnings before the week is out.

Carlow Weather's, Alan O'Reilly has told Ireland to get ready to expect some "damaging" weather.

He speculated this morning that both Met Eireann and the Met Office had just jointly named the system above Storm Ali but he was waiting for confirmation from Met Éireann, which we have now gotten.

The chances of getting a red alert are not on the cards at the moment but it can't be ruled out just yet.
