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

"These winds will then transfer rather rapidly across the country, with coastal counties seeing winds up to 130km/h".

A Status yellow wind warning is in place for counties Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Limerick and Tipperary, from midnight on Thursday until Friday morning.

There is now a yellow warning for wind in place for Northern Ireland.

In total, 13 counties have an orange weather warning in place - the second highest level of severity - they include: Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Clare, Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath and Waterford.

The Met office have issued a yellow weather warning as Storm Callum brings a spell of heavy and persistent rain for tomorrow.

Arriva is also cancelling services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog on both Friday and Saturday.

On Saturday, areas over high ground could see a further 50 to 80mm of rain.

The Indian summer is finally petering out as Storm Callum threatens to bring strong winds and the possibility of flooding to parts of the United Kingdom tomorrow.

"The south-east winds will be up to gale-force 8-9 and gusting to storm-force 10 overnight".

"We are urging people to take the necessary precautions", Ms Lowe said.

The weather has already caused misery this week for Scots, with strong winds and rain causing disruption to the transport network.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) warned that weather conditions at sea could also cause flooding with large waves, strong winds and a tidal surge. 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. With trees still in part leaf, there is a concern for felling as well.

According to the Met Office, gusts of 50 miles per hour are likely with potential for gusts of 60 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills. "Elsewhere, however, the winds should remain below warning thresholds".
