Brace for strong winds and rain as Storm Callum is on the way


A yellow weather warning is in place for Friday and Saturday as Storm Callum is set to hit many parts of Britain with severe force winds and torrential downpours.

High winds between 100kmh and 130kmh can be expected during these periods. Storm Callum is the third named weather system of the season.

According to Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey: “There is a low-pressure system coming in on Friday for which we have issued a warning, this warning may be changed over the next few days.

“This will depend on the track and the impact of this system, we are not ruling out the possibility of a named storm, but there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment.”

Travel disruption is also predicted as flood and wind warning is in large parts of Scotland, North West England, and Northern Ireland.
