Very wet and windy weather causing floods in parts of Wales

by James Wright

Parts of south Wales have seen around another 1.5 inches (32mm) overnight and that's on top of the rain that fell late last week. The ground is already saturated leading to many examples of localised flooding. There are also a number flood warnings on rivers around Wales.

The Met Office has a yellow warning in force across the whole of Wales, but counties between Carmarthenshire and Monmouthshire have an amber warning in force. The coastal district around north Ceredigion and south Gwynedd also has an amber warning for heavy rain.

This afternoon after a lull in the rain, the wet weather will return with the possibility of another 40-60mm (around 2 inches) of rain possible. A very mild afternoon with highs of 12-13C but it's windy too.

After a wet evening across the country, the rain will push northeast leaving a drier night.

There will be some showers around though and it will be very windy and mild. Milder overnight than we'd expect for daytime highs at this time of the year.

Tomorrow will be brighter in the north but a risk of seeing yet more rain pushing to southern parts of Wales later in the day.
