What's Storm Callum?

New weather warnings were issued by the Met Office earlier this week as the nation braces for the potentially deadly storm – which will have 80mph winds and 120mm of rain.

The storm has been given a name, Callum, because it's likely to be so severe – and naming storms encourages people to take the warnings seriously.

The Atlantic storm threatens to disrupt travel for commuters and holidaymakers, cut power, flood roads and put lives at risk due to flying debris and falling trees.

Strong winds with 80mph gusts are expected to lash Northern Ireland, western parts of Scotland and north West England.

t will be a two-day rain event, with up to 120mm possible across some places in Wales, western Scotland, northern England and the Yorkshire and Humber regions by midnight Saturday.

Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes will escape the worse of the weather and will enjoy relatively warm temperatures.
