The wind has picked up considerably since this morning.

Businesses throughout the county have closed their doors early due to safety concerns ahead of the arrival of Ophelia, including Gurns' in Manorhamilton.

Tesco has confirmed the closure of its Carrick-on-Shannon store from 12pm due to the storm.

It certainly appears to be getting darker in Fenagh.

There are still blue skies to be found but the wind is picking up significantly.
