Arriva is also cancelling services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog on both Friday and Saturday.

The third storm of the 18/19 season has just been named, with Storm Callum set to hit the North West with heavy rain and strong winds.

The third storm of the 18/19 season is set to bring heavy downpours and strong gales to the country, with yellow weather warnings now in place in some areas.

Areas of high ground could see over 60 mm of rain in 12 hours with some exposed locations seeing as much as 100 mm by the end of the day. There is a high risk of flooding and damage in coastal areas.

On Saturday, areas over high ground could see a further 50 to 80mm of rain.

"The first swathe of storm force winds will reach southern coastal counties between 23:00 tonight and 01:00 on Friday morning", said Mr Nolan.

Very strong winds are predicted, making driving conditions hazardous, especially for the more vulnerable road users, e.g. cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and high sided vehicles. Fallen leaves will lead to blocked drains and flooding issues.

Authorities warn of travel being disrupted as bridges close and some public transport being cut.

Natural Resources Wales' (NRW) have said they are sending out their emergency response teams to prepare for the storm, checking that flood defences are in good working order, clearing gulleys and ditches, and installing temporary defences.

Localised coastal/tidal flooding is probable on Friday along the south Wales coast and is also possible for west Wales, the Wye estuary, and some north-west and south-west coasts of England.

There is also the risk of further severe Southerly winds impinging onto Southern and Eastern coastal areas during the day.

Met Éireann forecaster Deirdre Lowe said strong winds would be followed by a period of heavy rain sweeping up from the south east, with the possibility of flooding.

If flooding does occur there is a chance that trains or bus services could be cancelled.
