This is what to expect when Storm Callum hits Northern Ireland

Met Eireann has now issued a status yellow wind warning for Limerick ahead of 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.

Forecasters have warned the storm could cause a "risk to life and property".

Shropshire is on the edge of a yellow weather warning issued by the Met Office - and Mid Wales is right in the firing line.

Met Eireann this afternoon extended the weather warnings.

The effects of Storm Callum are expected from 10 tonight - when the orange weather warning kicks in for counties Cork and Kerry. Winds of up to 130km are expected in coastal ares along with heavy rain and a risk of flooding.

Cllr John Campbell says areas of South Donegal which have been prone to flooding in the past owing to high tides could still be vulnerable.

There are two rain warnings from the Met office, one for Friday for Wales, also Cumbria into southern Scotland.

Borussia Dortmund Set Huge Transfer Fee For Jadon Sancho
He is on stand-by for the Under-20s games during this worldwide break, injury having seen him pull out of last month's games. Sancho joined City from Watford's academy in 2014 for a fee of around £66,000.

The yellow warning runs from 05:00 BST on Friday until midnight on Saturday and the amber warning from 06:00 on Friday until 18:00 on Saturday.

"Widespread flooding from surface water and rivers is possible across south Wales on Friday and Saturday, and is possible but not now expected elsewhere in Wales and parts of north-west England".

A zone of heavy rain associated with an intense weather system affecting western parts of the United Kingdom will become slow moving for a time, bringing prolonged rainfall and the potential for surface water flooding. There will be rough seas and large waves, making coastal areas unsafe.

Not yet formed, but later Thursday into early Friday, a rapidly deepening Atlantic storm depression (936hPa), will advance towards the west of Ireland and track northwards, eventually pulling away towards Iceland daytime Friday.

Officials said on Thursday morning that many schools could face closure on Friday, but that any decisions on school or business closures, as well as impacts to public transport systems, will not become fully apparent until tomorrow morning.

The Road Safety watchdog advises road users to check local weather and traffic conditions and be aware of the conditions before setting out on a trip.

Train services between Swansea and Carmarthen are being suspended during parts of Friday because of Storm Callum.
