The Met Office have issued a Yellow Weather Warning for North Wales this afternoon:

Rain likely to be heavy, especially over high ground, during Wednesday and Thursday which may lead to some flooding and travel disruption.

What to expect

  • Homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
  • Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
  • Delays or cancellations to train and bus services are possible
  • Some communities may be cut off by flooded roads

Further details

An Atlantic weather system arriving on Wednesday is expected to bring a further spell of rainfall which is likely to become particularly prolonged over areas of high ground. Whilst there is more uncertainty over the rainfall totals for south Wales, there is a small chance that 50-60 mm could fall here in 24 hours. There is higher confidence in the rainfall for north-west Wales, with between 70 and 100 mm of rain most likely. Given already saturated ground, in south Wales in particular, there is a chance of further flooding during this event.
