High spring tides have already led to the closure of the Promenade earlier this week, and the strong winds due to hit overnight are expected to exacerbate the flooding problem.

The remainder of the country is covered by a Status Yellow Wind Warning and will remain in place until 9am Friday.

"A lot of rain to come through 36 hours on Friday and Saturday especially for western parts of England, south-west Scotland and Wales".

Areas in the south and south west could see between 50 and 100mm of rain by the end of Friday, with as much as 120 to 160mm falling over high, south-facing ground. And another for Saturday which covers more of Scotland. "Then those winds will pick up everywhere as the low pressure tracks north", said Ms Dillon.

James Nicholas of Arriva Trains Wales said: "There is significant rain expected this weekend across Wales coupled with high winds and very high tides, particularly up on the Cambrian Coast - linking in to Shrewsbury".

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern warned Storm Callum will pack winds of up to 70mph and heavy rain could cause severe travel disruption and damage.

A zone of heavy rain associated with an intense weather system affecting western parts of the United Kingdom will become slow moving for a time, bringing prolonged rainfall and the potential for surface water flooding. 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. The warning will be valid between midnight tonight and 9:00am tomorrow morning.
