As Storm Franklin moves in millions of commuters are being told to only travel if it is necessary during rush hour.
The Met Office has issued weather warnings for Monday morning for most of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
National Rail are urging people to “avoid travel if possible” and are advising to “check before you travel” due to the high winds.
There has been three major storms in such quick succession which has caused wide spread damage across the UK over the past week.
A National Rail spokesperson said, “Please check before you travel if you plan to use train services today or on Monday.
“The poor weather conditions may cause flooding, and any trees already weakened by Storm Eunice may fall down.
“Where conditions worsen, speed restrictions could be put in place to ensure you can travel safely.”
A Cross Country spokesperson said, “We are strongly recommending not to travel today. Storms over the past week will have tested the infrastructure and with Storm Franklin today, we will have severe disruption across our network.”
