The Met Office has warned heavy rainfall moving in from the South West issued a 36-hour amber warning for Wales.

Winds of more than 70mph have buffeted the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the west coast of Britain along with torrential rain.

Wind speeds hit 76mph on the Isles of Scilly as Storm Callum blew in during the early hours of Friday. There are limited replacement buses but road closures are also likely.

Cardiff and Exeter airports also announced some flights had been cancelled because of the weather.

Friday's weather could impact travel plans during the morning commute, with Met office warning "road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible".

"Despite clearance efforts by the Council, the high winds will increase the amount of falling leaves and block drains very quickly, exacerbating flooding" he warned.

The main impacts for the United Kingdom will be from heavy rain across some western areas on Friday and Saturday, with yellow Met Office weather warnings for wind and rain now in place for Friday and Saturday.

Rainfall totals could reach as high as 150mm over the Brecon Beacons, almost as high as the monthly average of 170mm for Wales.
