STORM CALLUM: Met Eireann extend five weather warnings

The weather warning comes into force at 10.00pm on Thursday night, and will last until midday on Friday. "Along with a spell of heavy rain and high tides there is a risk of coastal flooding and damage".

A yellow alert was in place at the beginning of the week, as the city battles gale-force winds and flash floods due to high volumes of rain.

Met Éireann has warned that strong winds associated with Storm Callum could reach speeds of between 110 and 130km/h.

The Indian summer is finally petering out as Storm Callum threatens to bring strong winds and the possibility of flooding to parts of the United Kingdom tomorrow.

As a result, Met Eireann has issued two Status Orange Weather Warnings.

"The track of this storm is a bit further north than Storm Ali, so therefore Callum shouldn't be as damaging as Ali was in central parts of the country".

General safety advice has been issued in the wake of the warning, and now AA Ireland has followed suit, warning motorists of the incoming conditions. More localised surface water and river flooding is also possible for high ground parts of the south-west of England on Friday and Saturday.

The warning for Cork and Kerry is valid from Thursday 11 October 2018 22:00 to Friday 12 October 2018 09:00.

At the moment, it's looking like Callum's strongest winds will stay offshore. The main concern we are anxious about for the area is the amount of rainfall throughout Saturday itself.

It said strong winds could lead to some disruption, especially in exposed Atlantic coastal areas.

"Our teams are doing all they can to reduce the risk for communities, but if there is flooding we want to make sure people are doing all they can to keep themselves safe". The Western Isles could get another hit of severe gales and high gusts on Saturday afternoon, again not as stormy as on Friday but worth bearing in mind.

Winds of up to 60 miles per hour are also expected to hit Pembrokeshire, which combined with high tides could lead to some coastal impact due to large waves.
