Status Orange weather warning for Galway extended into Friday evening

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

There are now five weather warnings in place as the storm apporaches, including four status orange warnings and a status yellow warning.

The warning comes into effect from 10pm tomorrow night and covers Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork and Waterford.

Meteorologist with Met Eireann Joanna Donnelly says all coastal counties will be impacted.

THE Met Office has upgraded its severe weather warning for tomorrow with torrential rain and gale-force winds set to batter the Cardigan area.

However, the country's heatwave will end this weekend, as Storm Callum is set to bring over month's worth of rainfall in South West England, Wales and parts of northern England by Friday.

A Met Office spokesman said: "As Storm Callum passes to the northwest of the United Kingdom, a period of heavy rain will affect South Wales during Friday, with further spells of persistent and heavy rain at times during Saturday".

It said the PDP nomination would be a tight race between Abubakar and Tambuwal. "PDP is clearly the party to take over power". Former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar attends an interview with Reuters in Abuja, Nigeria May 11, 2018.

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. Again, areas of high ground are expected to be most affected with the potential for a further 50-80 mm of rain quite widely. Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

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.

"The strongest winds associated with this event will occur during the night-time hours and Friday morning rush-hour commute".

The forecaster's Atlantic rain charts reveal that Friday's storm will be followed by some heavy rain on Saturday with the next belt following early next week.

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

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