Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds

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

"We could see rainfall totals building up quite a lot, 40mm-50mm (1.6in-2in) over higher ground". Even though the high winds will be the main concern, a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain will occur too, making for an extremely windy and wet start, with squally conditions associated with the secondary cold front as it tracks north-eastwards up across the country.

There will be occasionally strong southeasterly winds, which will then ease.

Wicklow is one of the coastal counties that has been issued with an orange weather warning ahead of Storm Callum and residents are being asked to exercise caution as the storm advances.

While Northern Ireland will enjoy some respite from the stormy conditions on Friday afternoon, winds are expected to pick up in the far northwest of Scotland into the evening.

"Winds will reach strong gale force or storm force along the coast with severe or possibly damaging gusts". More localised surface water and river flooding is also possible for high ground parts of the south-west of England on Friday and Saturday.

Arriva is also cancelling services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog on both Friday and Saturday. It means southern parts of Wales especially are at risk of being flooded.

Shropshire is on the edge of the yellow warnings we have issued, with the most persistent and heaviest rain expected across Wales, north west England and south west England.

It comes after the United Kingdom enjoyed unseasonably high temperatures on Wednesday with Northolt, London, reaching 24.6C.

Tomorrow a yellow warning for strong winds will kick in around 3am as Storm Callum batters the city. The worst of the winds will impact on Friday morning rush hour, people will be travelling in Scotland for October holidays.

A spokesperson said the western county was experiencing a period of "very high astronomical spring tides".

According to the Met Office, gusts of 50 miles per hour are likely with potential for gusts of 60 miles per hour around exposed coasts and hills.
