The Met Office have issued a new weather warning for torrential rain this evening.
A yellow weather warning was issued by the forecaster on Thursday morning, just hours after the last weather warning for wind was removed at 7am. The new warning will affect areas in southern Wales including Cardiff, Newport and Swansea.
The warning is set to kick in at 8pm on Thursday and remain in place until 2am on Friday morning.
The Met Office say people should expect “difficult driving conditons and perhaps a few road closures”, as well as delays or cancellations to train and bus services.
Gusts of up to 70mph had already been recorded in south-west Ireland, with the storm hitting areas of northern England and Scotland on Wednesday.
In addition to the weather warning, there are currently 11 flood warnings and 20 flood alerts still in place across England, Scotland and Wales.
