The Port of Milford Haven, has issued a weather warning predicting "winds gusting to 50 Knots, Force 10 Storm."

Coastguard have recommended added all mooring holders to make every effort to ensure the safety and security of vessels on moorings, adding: "We would recommend alternative arrangements to using your moorings are considered to minimise potential damage."

RNLI lifeguards are strongly recommending that members of the public don’t go swimming in the sea this weekend, as strong winds can create large waves and changing currents, which can cause even strong swimmers to struggle.

Lifeguard Supervisor in South Pembrokeshire Adam Pitman, said: "We recommend that members of the public don’t plan a day down at the beach this weekend, as we are expecting some bad weather, and therefore unpredictable sea conditions.

"If you do go out to sea at all, make sure that you carry a means of calling for help, and if you see someone else in trouble, call 999 and ask for the coastguard."

Those who do decide to go to the beach should visit a lifeguarded one, and only swim between the red and yellow flags, which is the area most closely monitored by lifeguards.

Pembrokeshire County Council has advised campers to be prepared for the heavy rain and strong winds.

"Campers are advised to ensure their tents are secure.

"The public in general are asked to be aware of rough seas when visiting the county’s coastline.

"The county council is also hoping to contact organisers of outdoor events including the Pembrokeshire agricultural show.

"The three-day event begins next week and a number of marquees have already been erected on the Withybush site."
