Heavy and persistent rain has led to flooding and disruption recently, especially in north and parts of mid Wales.

According to the Met Office it was the most intense September storm for 30 years! With over a month's worth of rain falling in some places over 24 hours.

Rainfall totals from Sunday through to Wednesday morning:

Bodwelwyddan 94mm, Capel Curig 80mm, Usk 71mm, St. Athan 69mm, RAF Valley 68mm, Lake Vyrnwy 67mm, Cardiff 63mm, Porthmadog 55mm, Tredegar 54mm, Trawsgoed 50mm, Tirabad 47mm, Bala 45mm, Eglwyswen 40mm, Mumbles Head 40mm, Aberporth 37mm, Newbridge on Wye 34mm, Milford Haven 25mm.

Thankfully the worst of the heavy, persistent rain is over. Some rivers however remain swollen, especially in the Lower Dee Valley from Llangollen to Chester.

The low pressure responsible for the severe weather has slowly moved away so today will turn much drier apart from a few lighter showers.

On Friday a front will bring some rain but nothing too heavy and it will move through fairly quickly.

As for the weekend, Saturday looks the better day; the odd light shower in places otherwise dry with some sunshine.

Sunday may start dry but wind and rain will spread from the northwest during the day.

The outlook for next week is changeable; wet and windy at times interspersed with drier, brighter spells and showers.

In other words typical autumn weather but another deluge of rain like we’ve had over the last few days is not expected.
