Storm Callum October 8 Main

Met Éireann has issued a yellow weather warning as strong winds are set to batter the country over the next couple of days.

A weather system, expected to be named Storm Callum later today, has been brewing across the Atlantic and is expected to make landfall tomorrow evening.

People are being urged to watch out for weather updates and prepare for severe winds and rain as Storm Leslie, which is further to the south, will also be felt.

Met Éireann is warning people to take "extreme care" as "very heavy rain and extremely windy conditions will sweep in off the Atlantic Thursday night... There will be heavy possibly thundery rain in many places overnight, with strong to gale force southeasterly winds developing, giving way to squally showers and strong to gale force south or southwesterly winds by Friday morning with damaging gusts, especially in Atlantic coastal areas".

The national forecaster is also warning people of the potential for flooding in coastal areas "due to the combination of high seas, high tides, strong winds and low pressure".

So much for Autumn adventures....
