Across England, 72 flood warnings and 172 flood alerts have been issued ahead of Storm Ciaran hitting, while in Scotland there have been 18 flood warnings and 11 flood alerts issued.
Northern France is also expected to be impacted by the storm.
Just days before Storm Ciaran's predicted arrival, a severe weather event was declared in Littlehampton and Wick, West Sussex.
Over the weekend of October 28 and 29, 90mph winds battered the area, leading to the roof of a house to be ripped off.
Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (TORRO) investigators categorised the winds as a T4 tornado after being called to the seaside town.
The terrifying winds came shortly after Storm Babet wreaked havoc across Britain.
The storm left seven people dead and around 1,250 homes around the UK flooded.
While Storm Ciaran is likely to see less rainfall than Storm Babet, the amount of rain left in the wake of Babet means there is an increased risk of flooding in areas still recovering from the heavy downpours.
