The amber warning remains in place until 6pm on Saturday, while the broader yellow rain and wind warnings that include parts of north-west and south-west England, western Scotland and Northern Ireland will remain in place until midnight on Friday.

"Further warnings were being considered later Friday across parts of the south and east, with the risk for another swathe winds and rain", according to Met Éireann.

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".

Storm Callum lashed Ireland with winds of up over 120kmh last night and there are fears that similar conditions are on the way for the weekend.

"Even though the high winds will be the main concern, a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain will occur too, making for an extremely windy and wet start, with squally conditions associated with the secondary cold front as it tracks north-eastwards up across the country". Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

Arriva Trains Wales is planning to shut the line between 7am and 11am on Friday morning and in the evening.

"Our teams are doing all they can to reduce the risk for communities, but if there is flooding we want to make sure people are doing all they can to keep themselves safe".

Met Office Shawbury said wind was expected to pick up on Friday along with outbreaks of rain.

While heavy rain is expected to continue into the Saturday, the wind is now believed to ease off by Friday evening.
