High winds and heavy rain are piling more flood misery and travel disruption on to parts of the UK.
The Thames is predicted to rise to its highest level in more than 60 years in some places, while the Met Office has issued a "red" weather warning for exceptionally strong winds in western parts of Wales and north-western parts of England.
Winds of 80mph are expected widely in those areas and gusts could reach up to 100mph in the most exposed locations in west and north west Wales, potentially hitting power supplies, bringing down trees and causing widespread damage.
Coastal areas could also be battered by large waves, the Met Office said.
Gusts of 92mph have already been recorded in the Mumbles on the Gower Peninsula, south west Wales, and the south coast of the Irish Republic has been battered by winds of 96mph, weather forecaster Meteogroup said.
The Met Office has forecast 70mm (2.75 inches) of rain by Friday in the already-sodden West Country - more than the region would normally get in the whole of February - with south Wales, western Scotland, Northern Ireland and other parts of southern England also expected to bear the brunt of the deluge.
Windsor, Maidenhead and communities in Surrey have been warned to expect severe disruption and risk of flooding. There are 14 severe flood warnings - meaning there is a danger to life - in the Thames Valley.
Around 50 homes flooded overnight in the Thames Valley, bringing the total number of homes flooded across the country since late January to 1,135. Some 5,800 properties have flooded since early December when the series of winter storms began.
Another two severe flood warnings remain in place in Somerset, while the Environment Agency has 129 flood warnings and more than 200 less serious flood alerts in force across England and Wales.
The West Coast Main Line will close between Preston and Lancaster for a couple of hours at around 7pm today because of high winds, Network Rail said.
From 4pm there were speed restrictions in place on various rail routes in north west England, with passengers told to expect journey times to be extended by up to 60 minutes.
There were no East Midlands trains running between Manchester Oxford Road and Liverpool Lime Street.
The AA said that by early afternoon it had attended 29 flood-stricken vehicles, with the number since last Friday reaching 680.
