Traffic tries to navigate floods on the Castlebar to Belmullet road in Co Mayo yesterday

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.

"The public are asked to be careful on all roads due to surface water flooding and in coastal areas, especially at high tide".

At 7pm, they issued three separate Orange Wind warnings for various counties across Ireland.

"The south-east winds will be up to gale-force 8-9 and gusting to storm-force 10 overnight".

The national forecaster said a band of stormy weather will bring a risk of coastal flooding to the west of the country, while a separate area of low pressure could bring heavy rainfall to the east at the weekend.

Cork and Kerry are also affected by the status orange wind warning, but those counties have been advised to adhere to the warning between 10pm tonight and 9am in the morning.

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

Drive to anticipate strong cross winds and other hazards such as falling/fallen trees.

At the moment, it's looking like Callum's strongest winds will stay offshore.

"On Friday, the winds will ease somewhat in many areas during the morning, becoming fresh or strong southerly".

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

Rain will then hit Edinburgh on Friday afternoon, becoming increasingly heavier into the evening. Possibly damaging and disruptive southeast winds will veer southwest after the passage of this front, with the strongest of the winds set to impact coastal areas.

The city council's weather assessment team has forecast that the time of most concern for surge is early Friday morning at high tide.

A combination of winds up to 60 miles per hour and heavy rainfall are set to make driving conditions hazardous - including along the coast at times of high tides.

Be careful out there, folks.
