Storm Callum: Your hour by hour forecast for Edinburgh and the Lothians

A yellow warning remains in place across Northern Ireland and much of the United Kingdom until midnight as Storm Callum sweeps in from the Atlantic.

"Further warnings were considered across parts of the south and east later Friday, owing to another swathe of wind and rain".

Forecasters warned of heavy rain - up to four inches - and potential flooding in the wake of the storm.

The national emergency group includes Met Éireann, local authorities, the ESB, OPW and government.

The forecast deluge poses a risk of communities being cut off by flooding, while widespread gales are expected to cause disruption across western areas of the UK.

Prolonged heavy rain is expected across much of the country on Friday and again on Saturday.
