Snowfall early on Tuesday has affected travel around some parts of Wales, with heavy rain and coastal gales forecast in the next 24 hours.
Some roads are blocked by water and snow, and fire crews are dealing with several flooding incidents.
A yellow "be aware" warning for snow has been issued for mid and north Wales on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
A yellow warning for heavy rain, strong winds and gales is also in place for south west and south east Wales.
Full story here
Parts of the UK are again facing flooding as forecasters warn a further band of stormy weather later could mean the "strongest" winds of the winter.
More than 1,000 properties have flooded over the past week while homeowners have been warned many more are at risk.
Fourteen severe flood warnings are in place in Berkshire and Surrey while two remain in Somerset.
BBC weather forecaster Laura Gilchrist said winds could exceed 100mph around the coast of west Wales.
Gales could be the strongest and most disruptive of the winter so far, she added.
Thanks for that
Yep it is getting real bad fast here.
Good morning Nodoom
Quote:During this afternoon a swathe of exceptionally strong winds is expected to affect western parts of Wales and then some northwestern parts of England this evening, particularly in coastal areas. Winds are expected to gust 80 mph widely and possibly reach 100 mph in the most exposed locations in west and northwest Wales.
Winds of this strength can cause widespread structural damage, bringing down trees and also leading to loss of power supplies. In addition, large waves are likely to affect some coasts. The public should take action to alter their travel arrangements during this spell of storm force winds.
A man has died apparently trying to clear a fallen tree as hurricane-force winds batter parts of the UK.
The dead man, believed to be in his 70s, was killed after the tree brought down power cables in Wiltshire.
Gusts of over 100mph were recorded as Met Office "red warnings", the first of the winter, were issued. Sixteen severe flood warnings remain in place.
Power and transport networks have been badly hit, in what has been called an "almost unparalleled natural crisis".
Residents in many parts of the UK have been warned not to go out.
Wiltshire Police say the dead man was killed in a suspected electrocution in Bremhill, a village between Calne and Chippenham, on Wednesday afternoon.
Here in London we have very strong winds with even stronger hurricane like gusts and heavy rain!.

Forecasters are predicting some respite on Thursday from stormy weather but another Atlantic low could bring gales of more than 80mph from Friday onwards.
The Energy Networks Association, representing UK energy companies, said about 80,000 homes and businesses remained without electricity.
The organisation's spokesman, Tim Field, said engineers had restored power to 145,000 customers since the storms hit on Wednesday, with 68,000 restored overnight.
No significant change on the horizon
Indications suggest that it will remain very unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, particularly in the south and west where the heavier and more persistent rain is likely. Gales are expected at times, again especially in the south and west where locally severe gales are possible around exposed coasts. Some brighter weather is possible between weather systems though.
Whilst temperatures will be mainly near normal, it will be rather mild at times in the south and possibly rather cold in the north. Showers will be wintry on higher hills, particularly in the north of the UK.
Although it is likely to remain unsettled through the weekend, it may be slightly less windy and rain may become slightly less prolonged. Temperatures could recover a little too, with a decreasing risk of frost.
Monday 24 February—Sunday 2 March
Hopefully a sign of something drier?
Current indications point towards early February's changeable conditions persisting through the rest of the month, with deep Atlantic lows continuing to sweep by the UK, especially towards the northwest of our islands. The most likely scenario during this period therefore would see northwestern parts of the UK affected by the most frequent spells of unsettled and windy weather.
Meanwhile, with higher pressure tending to favour the opposite corner of the country, southern and eastern regions would tend to see the longer spells of drier and brighter weather. Such a signal seems more likely into early March. As we have tended to see throughout this winter, some colder periods are possible, particularly between weather systems. This suggests that temperatures are likely to remain close to the seasonal average, with frost and ice possible by night. Hill snow will also be possible, especially in the north.
