Met Office issues upgraded amber alert for Cardigan area

Storm Callum How will bad weather affect the UK

While on Saturday there is a "danger to life" alert over potential flooding due to rain covering Lothian and Borders and Dumfries and Galloway.

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.

The Met Office's Chief Meteorologist Frank Saunders said: "Strong winds at this time of year can increase the rate of leaf fall which can potentially block drains or culverts and, with the heavy rainfall expected over Friday and Saturday, could well heighten the potential for flooding.

The strongest winds are expected across Northern Ireland during the morning".

High winds with gusts of 50mph to 60mph around exposed coasts and hills are also forecast.

The amber warning remains in place until 6pm on Saturday, while the broader yellow rain and wind warnings that include parts of north-west and south-west England, western Scotland and Northern Ireland will remain in place until midnight on Friday. "Elsewhere, however, the winds should remain below warning thresholds". Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.




Here, Clare County Council has held meetings involving various responders as they monitor the expected situation locally.

"This evening and tonight it will become very windy with strong to gale force southeast winds, associated with storm Callum", according to the national forecaster.

Wherever in the United Kingdom you are we want to hear how you have been affected and how you are coping or preparing now and throughout the winter.

NRW has also advised people to take extra care will driving, to avoid walking or driving through any flood water, and to avoid fast flowing rivers and streams.

Already there are delays and cancellations to train and bus services.

Before we get there, warm in any sunshine Thursday afternoon before some heavy showery (and possibly thundery) rain for western parts by Thursday evening.
