Weather warning as Storm Callum approaches

While heavy rain is expected to continue into the Saturday, the wind is now believed to ease off by Friday evening.

The warning for those counties is in place from Friday 12 October 2018 00:01 to Friday 12 October 2018 09:00.

Storm Callum is expected to bring gale force winds of up to 150 kmph with torrential rain.

Met Éireann have just upgraded the yellow weather warning to a Status Orange for 13 counties, as Storm Callum is officially named.

Strong winds associated with Storm Callum, coinciding with high spring tides, will hit Ireland on Thursday night and Friday morning, with coastal areas the worst affected.
