Showers overnight before bright spells on Saturday

Another band of rain pushed across Wales last night. Mumbles saw 18.4mm falling on already sodden ground. The ground across Wales is generally saturated and the risk is that any more rain that falls will easily lead to surface water flooding.

Overnight we have another band of showery rain pushing across the country. This will help top up the rain amounts we've already seen over the past few days. The wind will continue to be on the blustery side. Temperatures remain in double figures everywhere.

Saturday starts generally dry with some bright spells around. Whilst for many it will remain dry the next band of rain will arrive in the far west affecting Pembrokeshire, Gwynedd and Anglesey first. It remains mild with highs of 16C.

This band of rain will be showery in nature with some heavy pulses potentially bringing more of a risk of flooding in places. That clears away to sunny spells and showers on Sunday. Later on Sunday sees another spell of very heavy rain and strong winds which sees more yellow warnings being issued.

As we head in to Monday we have AMBER warnings in force for south and mid Wales. This is be prepared for the strong winds expected. This is on top of the yellow warnings for heavy rain that could continue to cause problems with flooding.

The winds are expected to see gusts of 60-80mph but in exposed coastal areas we could see even stronger gusts. This could see disruption to power and transport networks including road and rail.
