Storm Callum

Post by M0XXQ » Wed Oct 10, 2018 7:22 pm

Met Éireann has named an intense area of low-pressure, which will pass to the west of Ireland, northern England and Scotland during Friday, Storm Callum. The strongest winds are likely in western Ireland, although North Western parts of the UK can expect severe gales. The main impacts for the UK will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday. Yellow Met Office Weather Warnings for wind and rain are in force for Friday and Saturday.

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. There is also a risk that the high winds associated with Storm Callum, combined with high tides, may lead to some coastal impacts due to large waves.”
