Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds

UK Weather: Met Office Issues Yellow Rain Warnings As Storm Callum Approaches Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds
Jay Anderson | 12 October, 2018, 00:26

The weather warning has been issued for Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork, Waterford, Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry and will remain in place from 10pm tonight until 9am on Friday.

THE Met Office has upgraded its severe weather warning for tomorrow with torrential rain and gale-force winds set to batter the Cardigan area.

The coastal counties are expected to see strong winds of up to 130 kilometers per hour, while winds of 110 kilometers per hour are to hit 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.

A Met Office spokesman said: "As Storm Callum passes to the northwest of the United Kingdom, a period of heavy rain will affect South Wales during Friday, with further spells of persistent and heavy rain at times during Saturday".

High winds with gusts of 50mph to 60mph around exposed coasts and hills are also forecast. There will be rain as well later in the night and combined with the stormy winds and high tides, coastal flooding is likely. Fallen leaves will lead to blocked drains and flooding issues.




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.

However, it is Friday (October 12) which is set to see the full force of Storm Callum, with increasing cloud which brings rain northwards through the afternoon. "Road users should also be aware of the risk of their vehicles aquaplaning on standing water".

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

Wales and the North West could have the heaviest deluge.

"We are advising people to avoid coastal areas during this event". The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday.

The council has distributed sandbags to protect homes at risk of flooding.
