Risk of flooding

Tagged with:

There's a big contrast in the weather across Wales today - The north east dry but the south west very wet and some torrential rain, especially in Pembrokeshire. The Met Office has issued an amber alert.

As much as 50 to 100 mm of rain, (2 to 4 inches), is likely over the next six hours or so with a risk of flooding and treacherous driving conditions. To give you an idea of how much rain is likely, the October average rainfall for Tenby is 131.3 mm.

The flood-line number is 0845 988 1188 or take a look at the Environment Agency's website.

The rain will spread north this evening and clear so it will be turning much drier overnight with the wind easing.

Tomorrow will bring a mixture of sunny intervals and scattered showers. Some of the showers will be heavy with a risk of thunder. Top temperatures 13 to 15 Celsius with a south to south-easterly breeze.

It's a similar story for Wednesday with more persistent rain coming on Thursday although it's possible that the far north and west may escape.

Friday should be dry with some mist and fog patches in the morning.
