Met Éireann has upgraded it's weather warning for Clare to Orange.

Strong winds are expected to arrive across Northern Ireland during Thursday night, continue to spread by Friday morning.

"Although the winds will be strongest at the coast they will also be strong inland too, with gusts expected of up 100 km and hour".

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

It comes on top of existing yellow Met Office warnings for high winds and heavy rain across most of the country.

Ireland will bear the brunt of the storm, but gusts of 80mph are expected in parts of Scotland, with up to 10cm of rain falling.

Heavy rain will hit western parts of the United Kingdom as early as tomorrow, with flood warnings put in place ahead of the oncoming storm.

Despite basking in glorious sunshine today, Met Met Eireann has issued a Status Orange wind warning for Meath tomorrow.


"Some exposed locations could see as much as four inches by the end of Friday". There is a chance of gusts of 70 to 80 miles per hour in the Western Isles during Friday afternoon and evening.

Train services between Swansea and Carmarthen are being suspended during parts of Friday because of Storm Callum.

"On Friday, the winds will ease somewhat in many areas during the morning, becoming fresh or strong southerly".

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

The south and west coasts are "most at risk" due to flooding and there are certain counties which should remain on high alert until the storm has passed.

The weather system will initially have the greatest impact on the west of the country and then move north, however all of the country will be hit.

The council has distributed sandbags to protect homes at risk of flooding.

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.
