The Met Office has issued more 'be aware' warnings of rain and high winds for the whole of Wales.

It says a series of low pressure systems will bring mild and moist air to Wales along with strong winds.

This will lead to some large rainfall accumulations: 60 to 80 mm may fall fairly widely over the two days, and perhaps more than 120 mm over the highest ground.

Forecasters say Southwesterly winds will increase later on Monday morning, with gales extending eastwards across Wales .

Gusts of 50 mph are likely inland whilst gusts of 60 mph will affect some exposed coasts in the west and south.

There are 10 flood alerts in force.
