Heavy rain will affect parts of south Wales on Friday morning with some flooding possible, the Met Office has warned.

A Yellow weather warning is in force between 01:00 to 09:00, with flooding of a few homes and businesses "likely" and the potential for some disruption to transport.

Areas affected include Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Carmarthenshire, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Pembrokeshire, Powys, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Swansea, Torfaen and Vale of Glamorgan.

The Met Office said: "Spells of rain, heavy at times and accompanied by windy weather, are likely to produce 20-40 mm of rain over a period of several hours. Coming on top of some recent very wet weather, this rain is likely to lead to some temporary flooding impacts before the rain quickly clears early Friday morning."
