There's a "be aware" warning from the Met office of heavy rain for the whole of Wales.

Forecasters say there could be locally torrential downpours in places.

Localised flooding's also a possibility.

Yellow warning: see how the rain will spread across Wales

Rain will continue for the next few hours and we could still see some heavy downpours. Accumulations of 20-40 mm are likely.

The MET Office has issued a yellow weather warning because of the risk of surface water flooding. The warning is valid until 1600.

Rain will slowly clear eastwards later in the afternoon, perhaps allowing some brightness to develop. Rather windy, especially on coasts and hills. Maximum temperature 20 °C.
