Limerick council convenes Severe Weather Assessment Team as Storm Callum approaches

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

A Status Yellow wind warning for counties Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Limerick and Tipperary has also been issued by Met Eireann.

It's official. As expected, the approaching weather system has been upgraded to a storm.

A combination of winds up to 60 miles per hour and heavy rainfall are set to make driving conditions hazardous - including along the coast at times of high tides.

An orange weather warning will be in place for all coastal counties from 10pm, and will be valid until tomorrow morning.

A yellow warning has been declared for Northern Ireland and western Britain this Friday with strong winds and torrential rain posing a danger to life, the Met Office saya.

"Some exposed locations could see as much as four inches by the end of Friday".

Richard Brown, Pembrokeshire County Council's Head of Environmental Services and Public Protection, said that although Council staff would be working continuously to clear the roads, motorists would need to be vigilant.

"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". Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

"Storm Callum is the 3rd named storm of the 2018/19 season". Coming into effect at 10:00pm, the warning will expire at 9:00am tomorrow morning in these counties.

"And for Wales and south-Wales in particular even more rainfall".

The strongest winds are expected across eastern areas of Northern Ireland during the early hours of Friday morning followed by Scotland from mid-morning onward.

"We are advising people to avoid coastal areas during this event".

While heavy rain is expected to continue into the Saturday, the wind is now believed to ease off by Friday evening.
