If you're planning a bonfire party or firework display this evening then wrap-up warmly and take an umbrella if you're heading out.

It's not going to the best of weather for being outdoors although some parts of Wales will fair better than others.

Low pressure is moving south across Britain today producing some rain, showers and gusty winds.

It looks like Mid and North Wales will see the worst of the rain.

In fact the Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for heavy rain for the following counties until 9pm this evening:

Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Powys, Wrexham

Heavy and prolonged showers this afternoon and at first this evening are likely to give rainfall totals in excess of 15 mm with a 3 hour period in some places.

Overall totals in excess of 30 mm of rain are expected in some parts, more especially over high ground.

So it's going to be a bit soggy in places this evening but parts of south Wales may get away largely dry.

There's a big 'Firework Fiesta' on Barry Island which is scheduled to start at 7.45pm.

Its going to be chilly so don't forget your scarf and gloves. I wouldn't rule out a shower but most of the time it should be dry.

Further North, there are Fireworks on the Beach at Y Felinheli near Bangor from 7pm plus a BBQ as well. It's going to be breezy here with a greater chance of showers.

Have fun and be careful with those sparklers!
