The warning comes into effect from 10pm tomorrow night and covers Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Clare, Kerry Dublin, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Cork and Waterford. There will also be spells of heavy rain, high tides and coastal flooding.

"There are a number of locations on our network which have been susceptible to flooding during extreme weather and as such we are looking at possible amendments to services in partnership with Network Rail to reduce the impact of this weather".

Storm Callum is expected to bring gale force winds of up to 150 kmph with torrential rain. The Borders are likely to feel the worst of the rain.

At the moment, it's looking like Callum's strongest winds will stay offshore. Picking up from 5am-6am on Friday, (parts of Scotland) could see gusts right through the day of 60mph, 70mph or 80mph.

Senate confirms Judge Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

However Mr Dewhurst said locals in Tayside and Fife are "not going to escape fully", adding: "People will be waking up for work or school and it is going to be a cloudy, wet start to the morning".

The Met Office forecast states: "The zone of heavy rain affecting England and Wales on Friday is expected to slowly move northwards on Saturday, with the focus of heaviest rainfall slowly moving away from south Wales but increasingly into parts of Scotland".

The forecaster's Atlantic rain charts reveal that Friday's storm will be followed by some heavy rain on Saturday with the next belt following early next week. The main concern we are anxious about for the area is the amount of rainfall throughout Saturday itself.
