Met Éireann issues first weather warning for Storm Callum
Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow Wind Warning for Carlow ahead of a very active weather system, now named Storm Callum which is expected to make landfall on Thursday night.
Issuing the warning, Met Éireann said: "A spell of wet and very windy, possibly stormy, weather is expected on Thursday night/ Friday morning as a deep depression tracks Northwards to the West of Ireland."
"There is the risk of coastal flooding due to high tides and surge," they added.
"Later Friday and continuing into Saturday there is the potential for some high totals of rainfall and flooding due to another area of low pressure and series of weather fronts, with the East and South particularly at risk," the national forecaster said.
They added: "Strong winds associated with Storm Callum, coinciding with high spring tides will affect Ireland on Thursday night and Friday morning.
"Winds will be strongest overnight and early on Friday, gusting between 90 and 110 km/h at coasts."
The current Status Yellow Advisory is valid from 11pm on Thursday, October 11 until Friday, October 12 at 9am.
