Storm Callum may signal start of weekend wash-out

Met Office issues upgraded amber alert for Cardigan area

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.

Throughout Friday and Saturday, areas covered by the warnings could see between 50-100 mm on Friday and 50-80 mm on Saturday.

"Storm Callum" is the third storm of the 2018/19 season, with the strongest winds likely to hit western Ireland, although North Western parts of the United Kingdom can expect severe gales.

Natural Resources Wales has now issued a number of flood warnings, which advises people to take "immediate action", with heavy rain is expected to cause flooding on a number of rivers.

The high winds, combined with heavy rain, could see leaves and twigs blocking drains, making flooding more likely, meteorologist Sarah Kent said.

Richard Brown, Pembrokeshire County Council's Head of Environmental Services and Public Protection, said that although Council staff would be working continuously to clear the roads, motorists would need to be vigilant.

"The public are asked to be careful on all roads due to surface water flooding and in coastal areas, especially at high tide".

Rail services to Drogheda, Dundalk and Belfast have been suspended because of a tree on the line at Donabate in Dublin.

There are now no reports of power outages or trees down in Laois. Spray and flooding is also likely to lead to hard driving conditions and some road closures.

Despite there being no weather warning now in place for Wrexham on Saturday, further heavy rainfall is expected to hit the area throughout most the day.
