Storm Callum to hit Pembrokeshire

UK Weather: Met Office Issues Yellow Rain Warnings As Storm Callum Approaches Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds
Ray Hunter | 12 October, 2018, 00:30

"An ORANGE level warning is issued by Met Éireann for wind speeds with the capacity to produce risky, stormy conditions which may constitute a risk to life and property".

The warning comes into effect from 10pm tomorrow night and covers Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork and Waterford.

Winds will be strongest overnight and early on Friday, gusting between 110kph and 130kph at coasts.

Meteorologist with Met Eireann Joanna Donnelly says all coastal counties will be impacted.

The national forecaster said a band of stormy weather will bring a risk of coastal flooding to the west of the country, while a separate area of low pressure could bring heavy rainfall to the east at the weekend.

There are still yellow alerts in place for wind and rain for Northern England and large swathes of England and Scotland.

The UK Met Office now has a yellow wind warning for Friday and rain warning into Saturday.

Storm Callum is now swirling off the southwest coast and will deepen rapidly over the course of the next 12 hours, according to Midland weather expert Cathal Nolan. Gusts 50 to 60 miles per hour are likely in some places, with potential for gusts of 70 to 80 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills. This is also set to elapse at 9am on Friday morning.

Winds of up to 60 miles per hour are expected to hit the area, which combined with high tides could lead to some coastal impact due to large waves.

The county council is urging motorists to avoid all coastal roads, and to only make essential journeys.

South Wales is bracing itself for a two-day deluge that's expected to cause flash floods and travel chaos. There is the potential for flooding in these areas. Even though the high winds will be the main concern, a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain will occur too, making for an extremely windy and wet start, with squally conditions associated with the secondary cold front as it tracks north-eastwards up across the country.
