Status Orange weather warnings have been issued for 13 counties which are expected to bear the brunt of the storm.

The Department of Education has said that schools and colleges should stay closed on Friday if there is a risk to safety due to the arrival of Storm Callum.


Today's unseasonably warm weather will be replaced by the strong winds and heavy rain felt at the beginning of the week as we head into Friday and Saturday.

Rainfall is expected to reach up to 10cm and could cause flooding, as well as making driving conditions hard for those affected.

A Status orange warning for winds is in place for Cork and Kerry from 10pm on Thursday.

The Met Office has therefore warned that there is chance of injuries and a danger to life. Another bout of strong southerly winds will spread in during Friday night and last into Saturday but this won't be as bad as on Friday, just another windy day. There is the risk of localised flooding, tricky conditions on the roads with surface water and spray.

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

"This event is predominantly expected to be a coastal one, though the severe winds will extend to inland parts, especially overnight and very early on Friday morning", Met Éireann has added. "You can check our website or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 for any flood warnings that may be in place and keep an eye on weather reports and local news for details of any disruption in your area".

Winds of up to 130km are expected, possibly going even higher in coastal areas.

Natural Resources Wales' (NRW) have said they are sending out their emergency response teams to prepare for the storm, checking that flood defences are in good working order, clearing gulleys and ditches, and installing temporary defences.

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