Warnings in force for heavy rain across Wales

It's a very wet and windy start to the week with yet more rain and strong winds buffeting Wales. A cold front from a low pressure system sweeping across the whole of Wales. The problem is that north Wales once again gets stuck with the wet weather as the backwash from this front lingers until late this evening.

Here it will be persistent and heavy and by the time it clears we could see around 60mm falling which is more than fell on Thursday. Southern parts of Wales will be cloudy with lighter outbreaks of rain.

Last week the focus of the rain was Gywnedd, Anglesey and Conwy, this time around Denbighshire and Flintshire will also be in the firing line.

As the rain begins to pull away the winds increase to gale force, particularly around the coast where gusts could reach 60mph in exposed places in the northwest and Anglesey.

Keep updated with weather warnings on the Met Office website, and river flood warnings on the Environment Agency website. It should be pointed out that rivers in Wales cope with rain quite well, the issue is more likely to be localised surface water flooding, as was the case in Llanberis last week.
