Looking further ahead there is another weather system expected to bring more wind and rain across parts of the United Kingdom on Sunday and into Monday, with some possible coastal impacts.

He said current models "indicate that the worst of the storm will miss the country, with some charts indicating that the storm won't truly develop until it affects central Europe on Monday/Tuesday, where it will bring the first snowfall of the year to Alpine countries".

"Up to 90-110mm of rain is expected across Wales and the high ground of England".

"Lerwick 10 degrees, Belfast and Hull 13 and down there in London 17 Celsius through the afternoon, so a chiller day, especially out of that sunshine".

The strong winds will be accompanied by short-lived outbreaks of squally heavy rain in places.

Storm Bronagh has blown into the United Kingdom and is expected to bring with it a spell of strong gusty winds accompanied by heavy showers and thunderstorms.

Arriva Trains Wales suspended services between Carmarthen and Fishguard Harbour after a train hit a tree, but the line reopened late in the morning.

What's more the gusts are likely to leave a lot of debris around, which could potentially cause problems for commuters.

Speed restrictions were in place for many trains across the network in Wales and the west and north of England due to high winds, which were forecast to reach 45-50mph across much of the country.

Generally today will be blustery for most, with lots of showers around, some of which will be thundery at times.

There have been flood alerts in south-west Wales as well as across the north of England and West Midlands. The winds then veer to the NW and then westerly.

There will be a brief lull in the stormy conditions on Saturday with some drier and brighter weather possible.

The firm has odds-on at 2-1 that September is wetter than any other month in 2018 as Storm Bronagh makes its arrival.

Sheffield saw almost half a month's rain fall in 24 hours, while more than half a month's rain fell in Sennybridge in Wales.
