Louth hit with Orange weather WARNING

Originally, the warning for these counties was to be observed from 11pm Thursday night until 1pm on Friday.

The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday.

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for torrential rains and winds to hit Northern Ireland, western parts of Scotland, Wales and northern parts of England as Storm Callum strikes this weekend.

"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".

"Some exposed locations could see as much as four inches by the end of Friday". There will be rain as well later in the night and combined with the stormy winds and high tides, coastal flooding is likely.

A combination of winds up to 60 miles per hour and heavy rainfall are set to make driving conditions hazardous - including along the coast at times of high tides.

"We're likely to see the effects of Storm Callum coming in from Friday morning". Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

Wales and the North West could have the heaviest deluge.

Natural Resources Wales' (NRW) have said they are sending out their emergency response teams to prepare for the storm, checking that flood defences are in good working order, clearing gulleys and ditches, and installing temporary defences.

Head of Forecasting at Met Eireann (the Irish Met Office) Evelyn Cusack said a combination of storm-force winds and high tides means there is a possibility of flooding along the east, south and west coast as far north as Donegal. There is the potential for flooding in these areas.

The county council is urging motorists to avoid all coastal roads, and to only make essential journeys.

Winds that could top 80mph are forecast to batter western Scotland on Friday followed by downpours across more of the country on Saturday.
