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

At 7pm, they issued three separate Orange Wind warnings for various counties across Ireland.

A Met Office yellow warning for wind comes into place across much of the west coast between 3am and midnight on Friday - with a section of western Perthshire falling within the danger zone.

"You can check our website or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 for any flood warnings that may be in place and keep an eye on weather reports and local news for details of any disruption in your area".

Storm Callum is expected to pass over the country in a northerly direction, with warning for Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo and Clare set to expire at around lunchtime tomorrow.

Winds will be strongest overnight and early on Friday, gusting between 110kph and 130kph at coasts.

The Met Office warned homes and businesses could be subjected to flooding, while there's a chance of power cuts and loss of services.

Both Met Éireann and Midland Weather Channel have issued severe weather warnings ahead of Storm Callum's arrival in Ireland tonight.

Premier League stats: Manchester City could improve on last season, says Gracenote
Liverpool have been backed to win the Premier League title "soon" by former Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson. Since pre-season I believe I have understood the way Jürgen Klopp plays and the way the team plays", said Fabinho .

The Met Office said 50-60mph gusts were likely on Friday "with the potential for gusts of 70-80mph around exposed coasts and hills". "In addition, leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding".

Winds of up to 130km are expected, possibly going even higher in coastal areas.

Storm Callum is now swirling off the southwest coast and will deepen rapidly over the course of the next 12 hours, according to Midland weather expert Cathal Nolan. "Road users should also be aware of the risk of their vehicles aquaplaning on standing water". This is also set to elapse at 9am on Friday morning.

The weather system will initially have the greatest impact on the west of the country and then move north, however all of the country will be hit. The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday.

Ms Donnelly said there would be a risk of flooding in places.

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