STORM CALLUM: Met Eireann extend five weather warnings

UK Weather: Met Office Issues Yellow Rain Warnings As Storm Callum Approaches

The yellow wind warning affects Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Limerick and Tipperary.

The orange warning is in palce for 13 counties Meath, Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry, Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, and Waterford and will stay in place from 10 pm tomorrow (Thursday) until 12pm on Friday.

Tomorrow a yellow warning for strong winds will kick in around 3am as Storm Callum batters the city. "Along with a spell of heavy rain and high tides there is a risk of coastal flooding and damage".

Heavy rain will hit western parts of the United Kingdom as early as tomorrow, with flood warnings put in place ahead of the oncoming storm.

The Met Office has warned that homes and offices are likely to be flooded, with fast flowing or deep floodwater which could cause a danger to life.

At the moment, it's looking like Callum's strongest winds will stay offshore.

Be aware of local conditions in your area; wind strengths can vary significantly from place to place (depending on direction and local topography).

Ross Barkley scored his first goal for the club since joining from Everton, with Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata also netting. We know this club how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how risky they are. "We never got any momentum".

The country is getting ready for Storm Callum.

.

Arriva Trains Wales is planning to shut the line between 7am and 11am on Friday morning and in the evening.

However, the country's heatwave will end this weekend, as Storm Callum is set to bring over month's worth of rainfall in South West England, Wales and parts of northern England by Friday. The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday.

There will be occasionally strong southeasterly winds, which will then ease.

"Additionally there is a concern for storm surge, coastal flooding, and overtopping of waves around coasts, especially Atlantic coasts, due to the coinciding high spring tides". The Western Isles could get another hit of severe gales and high gusts on Saturday afternoon, again not as stormy as on Friday but worth bearing in mind.

The Met Office said 50-60mph gusts were likely on Friday "with the potential for gusts of 70-80mph around exposed coasts and hills".

Be careful out there, folks.
