Teresa Mannion's lively weather report went viral last weekend and her heroic efforts have come to the attention of US singer Ariana Grande.
Grande (22) posted a video of Teresa's report for RTE from the depths of Storm Desmond to her Snapchat account.

The singer shows the video playing on her iPhone at warp speed and she and her dancer Brian can be heard giggling in the background before repeating Teresa's stern storm warnings in slow motion.
Speaking to the Herald this week, Teresa said, "I was in a bubble of gale-force winds and heavy rain.
"I had my ear piece in and turned up to full volume so that I could hear the studio in Dublin, and I was being pulled this way and that," she added.
"Visually, I think the message could not have been clearer in terms of telling people how treacherous it was to be out in the storm."
