Nationwide road safety warning issued ahead of Storm Callum

UK Weather: Met Office Issues Yellow Rain Warnings As Storm Callum Approaches Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds

An amber warning for heavy rain has been issued for most of south Wales on Friday, as Storm Callum approaches.

The third storm of the 18/19 season is set to bring heavy downpours and strong gales to Northern Ireland, with yellow weather warnings now in place in some areas.

Areas of high ground are expected to be most affected with the potential for a further 50-80 mm of rain quite widely.

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.

Meanwhile, Met Eireann has issued an orange warning for gale-force winds of up to 80mph for all the coastal counties in the Republic of Ireland on Thursday and Friday.

Cllr John Campbell says areas of South Donegal which have been prone to flooding in the past owing to high tides could still be vulnerable.

The Met Office said that "leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding". Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

Arriva Trains Wales is closing rail lines because of the storm threat.

"Certainly, we will have some localised flooding in the east, but the biggest problems will be in the south and west", Ms Cusack continued. The worst of the winds will impact on Friday morning rush hour, people will be travelling in Scotland for October holidays.

There is also the risk of further severe Southerly winds impinging onto Southern and Eastern coastal areas during the day. The focus of heaviest rainfall will remain across Wales, and move increasingly into parts of Scotland.

"For Tayside and Fife on Friday there are no warnings in force but the rain is going to continue across the area right into Saturday. There is also a risk that the high winds associated with Storm Callum, combined with high tides, may lead to some coastal impacts due to large waves".
