After heavy outbreaks of rain this afternoon these are expected to continue for much of the evening.

However, there will also be some drier intervals for a time.

Further outbreaks of rain, turning persistent and heavy in places, will then spread across Wales during the early hours.

Minimum temperature 14 °C

Rain will continue in places during the day tomorrow, heavy at times and persisting into the evening in the north of the country. Also in more exposed coastal areas of the north the winds are expected to strengthen through the afternoon, with a possibility they could reach gale force at times.

Elsewhere, it is expected to become drier during the latter part of the afternoon.

Maximum temperature 19 °C.

Any lingering rain on Sunday will gradually fade and clear away northwards, whilst the strong breeze will also ease.

Sunny spells and scattered showers then follow on Monday and Tuesday.
