It is due to pass to the west of Ireland, northern England and Scotland during Friday.

A Status Yellow warning has also been issued for the rest of the country.

While heavy rain is expected to continue into the Saturday, the wind is now believed to ease off by Friday evening.

Shropshire is on the edge of the yellow warnings we have issued, with the most persistent and heaviest rain expected across Wales, north west England and south west England.

A Met Office spokesman said: "As Storm Callum passes to the northwest of the United Kingdom, a period of heavy rain will affect South Wales during Friday, with further spells of persistent and heavy rain at times during Saturday".

A amber warning for rain will be in place for parts of Wales on Thursday, with rainfall of up to 160mm expected to fall and the possibility of flooding.

As a result, Met Eireann has issued two Status Orange Weather Warnings.

Authorities warn of travel being disrupted as bridges close and some public transport being cut.

Trump calls stock sell-off 'a correction,' says Federal Reserve is 'crazy'
Netflix was down more than 8 percent, Amazon was off 6 percent and Apple and Google were both down more than 4.5 percent. A stock market correction is defined as a fall of at least 10 per cent from the high point of the last 52 weeks.

High winds with gusts of 50mph to 60mph around exposed coasts and hills are also forecast.

The Met Office said that "leaves and twigs, brought down by the wind, could block drains and culverts, increasing the likelihood of flooding".

He also urged extra care along the Pembrokeshire coastline.

The warning for Cork and Kerry is valid from Thursday 11 October 2018 22:00 to Friday 12 October 2018 09:00. There will be rough seas and large waves, making coastal areas risky.

James Nicholas of Arriva Trains Wales said: "There is significant rain expected this weekend across Wales coupled with high winds and very high tides, particularly up on the Cambrian Coast - linking in to Shrewsbury".

"We are urging people to take the necessary precautions", Ms Lowe said.

Storm Callum is the third named storm of the season.

"Additionally there is a concern for storm surge, coastal flooding, and overtopping of waves around coasts, especially Atlantic coasts, due to the coinciding high spring tides".
