Storm Callum is smashing into the UK from the west, bringing with it a ton of wet weather and plenty of strong winds.
Persistent rain with pummel the nation today as the windstorm bulldozes in from the Atlantic, causing widespread downpours.
“Now it’s bringing in some heavy rain and gales to the west, we’ve already had a gust wind of 76mph across Isles of Scilly.”
The Met Office has issued an amber warning for heavy rain in the south Wales, where it will also be noticeably blustery.
Most areas will start off the day with some intense bursts of rain, especially in the south west of England and Wales.
What’s more, gusts are expected to exceed 60mph, with forecasters predicting the wind speed to reach at least 70mph by the end of Friday.
The worst gales are going to be across northern England and Northern Ireland, as well as Scotland, where it will be very windy.
Meanwhile, parts of Wales and the south west of England could experience flooding, but the south east of England and East Anglia will be sparred the rain.
Despite the outbreaks of rain in some parts of the country, temperatures are still high for the season.
South eastern regions could see heat levels reach a sweltering 22 Celsius, however, it will be cooler in the north west.
More than a 100ml of rain could fall over the higher grounds in south Wales tomorrow, therefore flooding is to be expected.
With Storm Callum set to thrash the island with torrential rain and gale force winds, bookmaker Coral has been forced to slash odds on this October being the wettest on record.
Coral make it 2-1 this month is the dampest in UK history as the fierce storm prepares to batter the nation this weekend and beyond.
“There’s been some warm weather, especially down south, this week but there is simply no escaping the rain now,” said Coral’s spokesman Harry Aitkenhead.
“We’re expecting severe downpours to take this October to within touching distance of the wettest we’ve ever had.”
The firm also put odds on at 10-11 that wind speeds reach 100mph hour or higher in mainland Britain by the end of the weekend as the Atlantic storm sweeps in.
Princess Eugenie and fiancée Jack Brooksbank’s wedding day could be a wet one as Coral put evens at 1-2 for it to rain when they say ‘I do’.
“It’s sure to still be a magical day for the pair, but we think that a few umbrellas might well be needed, with it odds on that the couple tie the knot in the rain,” added Harry.
