In Northern Ireland, the Met Office has warned that "it's likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves".

Areas of high ground are expected to be most affected with the potential for a further 50-80 mm of rain quite widely.

He said that some high areas in south wales could see up to 200mm of rain by Sunday when the monthly total for the region is 169mm.

The Met Office warned heavy rainfall moving in from the South West could present a risk to life and issued a number of weather warnings and flooding alerts around the country. The high winds, combined with heavy rain, could see leaves and twigs blocking drains, making flooding more likely, Mr Burkhill said.

The Britannia Bridge between Anglesey and the mainland was closed to all vehicles, and the A465 Heads of the Valleys road was also closed at Hirwaun in Rhondda Cynon Taff due to flooding.

Rail services to Drogheda, Dundalk and Belfast have been suspended because of a tree on the line at Donabate in Dublin.
