Status Orange Weather Warning For Dublin And 12 Other Counties

By Sunday, the weather is expected to settle down slightly as both warnings are lifted.

As well as this, Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath and Waterford also have an orange winding warning which says Storm Callum will bring South to southeast winds of between 100 and 130 km/h, strongest at the coast.

The Met Office has therefore warned that there is chance of injuries and a danger to life. The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday.

"Some exposed locations could see as much as four inches by the end of Friday".

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

The storm is likely to hit tonight, but at different times around the country (more on that here) and it's also expected to hit some places worse than others.

There are also risks of coastal flooding, and the warning is in place from 10pm Thursday until 12pm Friday. Winds will be strongest overnight and early tomorrow, gusting between 110kph and 130kph on the coasts. Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

"And for Wales and south-Wales in particular even more rainfall".

Speaking this morning, Met Éireann meteorologist Harm Luijkz said tonight is to become "very windy as Storm Callum arrives". "There could be localised flooding issues".

Gary White, NRW's Duty Tactical Manager, said: "The current forecasted rain could cause flooding this week, especially in south and west Wales, and we are urging people to prepare themselves".
