Storm Callum to BATTER Glasgow with heavy rain and strong winds

Strong winds associated with Storm Ali last month caused damage and disruption all over the country

Storm Callum is set to hit Irish coasts tonight (Thursday ), and a status orange wind warning was scheduled for all coastal areas at the time of going to press.

The Met Office has upgraded its weather warning to amber for South Wales and is warning of possible flooding, power cuts and road closures.

"This zone of heavy rain is expected to move slowly northwards on Saturday, with further yellow weather warnings in place".

The Met Office said there will be strong winds and rainfall up to 10cm, leading to possible flooding and hard driving conditions.

An orange weather warning will be in place for all coastal counties from 10pm, and will be valid until tomorrow morning.

Areas of high ground could see over 60 mm of rain in 12 hours with some exposed locations seeing as much as 100 mm by the end of the day. There is the risk of localised flooding, tricky conditions on the roads with surface water and spray.

Winds of 50mph will batter Northern Ireland, southwest England and west Wales during Thursday night, spreading to Scotland by Friday morning. "Road users should also be aware of the risk of their vehicles aquaplaning on standing water".

She highlighted the work the USA foreign aid agency is doing on the continent, as well as of her child-focused "Be Best" platform. Then, she has been driving to the american embassy, before ending his visit by the site of the pyramids of Giza, near Cairo.

Either way Storm Callum is coming and has the potential to cause damage ( though mostly in the west of the country).

It is because the storm is likely to coincide with high tides around the south Wales coast.

The National Emergency Coordination Group is meeting today to prepare for the arrival of Storm Callum.

Forecasters have issued a yellow warning for Northern Ireland and western Britain on Friday.

Winds of up to 60 miles per hour are also expected to hit Pembrokeshire, which combined with high tides could lead to some coastal impact due to large waves.

"We are advising people to avoid coastal areas during this event".

A zone of heavy rain associated with an intense weather system affecting western parts of the United Kingdom will become slow moving for a time, bringing prolonged rainfall and the potential for surface water flooding.
