Status Orange weather warning issued for County Galway ahead of Storm Callum

Rain will then hit Edinburgh on Friday afternoon, becoming increasingly heavier into the evening.

A zone of heavy rain associated with an intense weather system affecting western parts of the United Kingdom will become slow moving for a time, bringing prolonged rainfall and the potential for surface water flooding.

Pembrokeshire County Council is also warning residents to be aware of the potential for danger and disruption.

"An ORANGE level warning is issued by Met Éireann for wind speeds with the capacity to produce risky, stormy conditions which may constitute a risk to life and property".

A yellow warning for wind is in place for Northern Ireland from 3am on Friday morning until just before midnight on Friday night.

Met Eireann has issued fresh updates to their weather warnings ahead of Storm Callum, which is set to batter the country with winds of up to 130km per hour.

It is a position the German team have enjoyed for most of the season yet once again they are taking nothing for granted.

Official warnings will be issued in line with those forecasts, Ms Lowe added.

On Saturday, areas over high ground could see a further 50 to 80mm of rain.

The national forecaster has issued the Status Orange wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry, Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork and Waterford from 10pm Thursday to 9am Friday. Spray and flooding is also likely to lead to hard driving conditions and some road closures. There will be rain as well later in the night and combined with the stormy winds and high tides, coastal flooding is likely.

Coats on the south and west of the country are expected to be the worst affected by the storm, worth risks of heavy flooding and structural damage. "Road users should also be aware of the risk of their vehicles aquaplaning on standing water".

Met Éireann has warned that strong winds associated with Storm Callum could reach speeds of between 110 and 130km/h. The focus of heaviest rainfall will remain across Wales, and move increasingly into parts of Scotland.

"We are urging people to take the necessary precautions", Ms Lowe said.
