Three new weather warnings issued as Storm Callum nears Ireland

Three new weather warnings issued as Storm Callum nears Ireland

The winds will ease over all of Ireland on Friday afternoon and by Friday evening for Scotland.

Weather warnings issued from the Met Office.

Yellow weather warnings are in place for the rest of Wales and large parts of northern England and southern Scotland.

While the strongest winds will have passed by Friday noon, Ms Dillon said it would continue to be windy right through Friday and into Saturday and be accompanied by heavy rain. There will also be spells of heavy and persistent rain bringing the risk of localised flooding for Wales, NW and SW England, Northern Ireland and again to western Scotland.

Forecasters predict Storm Callum will bring over month's worth of rainfall, with a risk of storm surges along coastlines.

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.

The winds will be at their strongest overnight gusting between 110 and 130 km/h on the coasts.

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 Met Office is also warning of possible disruption to transport services.

Drivers are being urged to adapt to the roads in the coming days and to be on the lookout for vulnerable road users as high winds are expected to hit from Thursday night - 11 October - through to Saturday.

In Galway, council crews are rolling out the city's aquadam ahead of potential high-tides of up to six metres.

Meanwhile NRW said its emergency response teams were checking flood defences, clearing gullies and ditches and installing temporary defences.

James Nicholas of Arriva Trains Wales said: "There is significant rain expected this weekend across Wales coupled with high winds and very high tides, particularly up on the Cambrian Coast - linking in to Shrewsbury". The main concern we are anxious about for the area is the amount of rainfall throughout Saturday itself.
