It's definitely a day for ducks out there today and if the latest forecasts are anything to go by, our webbed-feet friends will be in their absolute element on Friday.
The Met Office in the UK has issued a status yellow warning for many areas and Northern Ireland is one of them. 'Delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport' should be expected as strong winds and heavy rain take hold.
Additionally, the Irish Mirror reports that and 'Atlantic vortex' will bring 'extremely disruptive conditions' to Ireland before the weekend. A Met Éireann forecaster told the publication that "It's impossible to predict the forecast after a couple of weeks from now but the weather will be very unsettled over the next week. It won't be as cold as last week, but there'll be heavy downpours on Thursday and Friday, especially in the eastern parts of Ireland."
Carlow Weather backs up this theory by stating that 'A spell of wet and very windy weather is expected across Ireland on Friday.'

It looks like we're in for a bumpy ride. If there was ever a day to call in sick, Friday might be it.
