Tell us: are you being affected by extreme weather in the UK?

Tell us: are you being affected by extreme weather in the UK?

The Met Office has warned this weekend will be a washout and have issued a yellow weather warning for rain from Friday until Sunday.

An amber rain warning for Wales in place until 6pm warned of danger to life from fast-flowing, deep floodwater, power cuts, and possibly some communities being cut off.

This video, taken by Tom Hurley, shows the waves coming over the sea wall and the seafront road submerged in water.

Met Éireann has already issued a Status Orange warning for the country's coastal counties as the Atlantic weather system approaches.

Two people have died after Storm Callum swept across parts of the United Kingdom bringing high winds and flooding.

Traffic Scotland said the Forth Road Bridge had been closed in both directions at about 9am, and tweeted it would be re-opened in 15 minutes. "We have already seen this impact on the roads and we could see more flooding as the rain flows down from the mountains".

Florida gov gives an update on Hurricane Michael preparation
Additionally, a Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for inland Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Levy, and Pasco counties. Once Michael makes landfall, it is expected to move northeastward across the Florida panhandle into southern Georgia.

"From midnight Friday all day to midnight Saturday, this will affect all of the Scottish Borders and the rain will be heavy and persistent most of the day".

Train services between Preston and Carlisle have resumed after being cancelled due to "severe weather" on Saturday - but passengers should still expect delays.

As the Storm Callum clean-up continues in Wales, commuters have been warned of possible Monday morning disruption - although most major roads and rail routes have reopened.

Further flood warnings have been implemeted in Scotland and about 2,000 homes and businesses in England have been left without power.

Met Office meteorologist Simon Partridge said: "The areas that have seen the bulk of the sunshine over the last couple of days will then be under the cloud, with patchy, light rain and drizzle at times". Combine this with the pretty frightful weather we've had overnight and it doesn't give you very good driving conditions.

The temperature at Weybourne (Norfolk) is now 25.7 °C, making today the warmest October day in 7 years.
