LOUTH WEATHER: Storm Callum has 'potential to cause damage'

Storm Callum is packing heavy rain and strong winds

Donegal Weather Channel also warned that a 'severe wind storm is looking likely to effect Ireland on Thursday night and into Friday morning with damaging gusts.' A statement on the storm read 'UK Met Office all ready have a early yellow warning in place for the North, and this most likely will be upgraded to an amber warning closer to the time'.

Around 30,000 households have been left without power in Ireland, as Storm Callum lashes towards the UK.

Passengers due to travel on Friday are being urged to check their flight status after Aer Lingus cancelled "a number" of flights due to the impending arrival of Storm Callum.

Yellow weather warnings, which will remain in place until midnight on Friday, have been issued for the rest of Wales and large parts of northern England and southern Scotland. That in itself is likely to bring disruption to roads and there is likely to be some bridge closures and power outages.

"Despite clearance efforts by the Council, the high winds will increase the amount of falling leaves and block drains very quickly, exacerbating flooding" he warned.

Sioned Warrell, Natural Resources Wales Duty Tactical Manager, said: "The rain could cause flooding, especially in south and west Wales, and we are urging people to prepare themselves".

Rainfall totals could reach as high as 150mm over the Brecon Beacons, almost as high as the monthly average of 170mm for Wales.

It's warning southeast winds veering southwest will gust generally between 100 and 130km/h, higher in some coastal areas and on high ground.

Windsor, the scene of Friday's royal wedding, looks set to escape the worst of the storm.
