The Met Office has reminded the public that fast-flowing or deep floodwater is possible, causing a danger to life, and where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

Spray and sudden flooding could also lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, and some communities could be cut off if roads flood.

Power cuts are also a possibility.
