Met Eireann issues status yellow warning with 'wet and very windy' weather expected

Meanwhile, Met Eireann has issued an orange warning for gale-force winds of up to 80mph for all the coastal counties in the Republic of Ireland on Thursday and Friday.

There is a wind warning in place from 3am to midnight on Friday, which covers Northern Ireland and parts of Western Scotland and warns of gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour in some places, with the potential for gusts of 70 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills.

Storm Callum has been upgraded from a yellow to an amber weather warning, which will cover a large part of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13.

Strong winds of up to 130 kilometres per hour are forecast, while winds of up to 110 kilometres per hour are being forecast for inland counties.

The extreme conditions triggered two yellow - "be aware" - warnings from the Met Office after a similar alert on Tuesday caused flooding and travel disruption to roads, railways and ferries.

"For Tayside and Fife on Friday there are no warnings in force but the rain is going to continue across the area right into Saturday".

The charts reveal a deep low-pressure system over Ireland on Tuesday and Wednesday next with another intense storm front appearing to follow on across the Atlantic from North America. "In addition, leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding".

"The public are asked to be careful on all roads due to surface water flooding and in coastal areas, especially at high tide".

Storm Callum will brings winds of up to 85mph, battering coastal towns with huge waves and risk of floods.

"On Friday, the winds will ease somewhat in many areas during the morning, becoming fresh or strong southerly".

The county council is urging motorists to avoid all coastal roads, and to only make essential journeys. On Saturday the rain could become even heavier. There is the potential for flooding in these areas.
