  • Storm Callum Check out where's it's heading

An amber warning for rain remains in place for parts of south Wales until 6pm, with further flooding and power cuts likely.

With Storm Callum thrashing the United Kingdom with torrential rain and gale force winds, bookmaker Coral has been forced to slash odds on this October being the wettest on record.

He warned that gusts of up to 40 or 50 miles per hour will be felt across western parts of Scotland, Wales, and western England throughout the day, with stronger gusts of 60 miles per hour possible along the Irish Sea coast. There is the continued risk of coastal flooding due to high seas.

Rail timetables in the South and North West have also been amended, while commuters in Northern Ireland were warned of disruption to services due to high winds.

The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for parts of the Dorset coast, as well as 58 flood alerts across England, while Natural Resources Wales has 28 flood warnings and 39 flood alerts in place.

"Widespread flooding from surface water and rivers is probable across south Wales on Friday and Saturday and is possible elsewhere in Wales and parts of western England".


A yellow "be aware" warning is in place for the rest of Wales for strong winds.

The Brecon Beacons village of Libanus, in Wales, recorded 182mm of rain in just 48 hours.

Met Éireann issued Status Orange weather warnings for 13 counties, with high winds coinciding with high tides yesterday evening.

Windsor, the scene of Friday's royal wedding, looks set to escape the worst of the storm.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "The wind gusts will approach 40-50mph across western parts of Scotland, Wales, western England and Northern Ireland".
