Major flooding likely as 36 hours of rain is expected for the UK!

The UK is currently experiencing the third named storm of the season, Storm Callum.

Strong winds have been felt across many parts today with Cairngorm Mountain seeing a wind gust of 116MPH earlier today!

Overall gusts of 50-70MPH have been more typical which will continue throughout today.

Whilst this may cause problems in one or two areas the main threat associated with Callum is the rain.

For 24-36hours we will see an almost stationary cold front alligned through Wales, The North West of England and into Scotland.

This will have the potential to drop 100-150mm of rain easily with some models suggesting up to 350mm of rain!

This of course will flow into the rivers and area prone to flooding need to follow all local guidance.
