I think we have seen the worst of the rain for the time being but there is a more heavy rain on the way. Strong to severe gale force winds as well.

North West Wales catching most of the rain in the next 24 hours. Rainfall totals of 30 to 60mm are expected.

That's around 2 inches with 70 to 100mm in places, 3 to 4 inches, especially on higher ground so there is a risk of further flooding in places.

Tonight will be drier apart from a few spots of drizzle with some rain spreading into the North West around midnight.

A mild night but windy. If anything the wind will strengthen with gales on many coasts and on high ground.

Tomorrow most of the rain will be North West Wales. Heaviest on the Snowdonia mountains. Elsewhere the rain lighter with some drizzle.

However parts of Powys, South and North East Wales will be largely dry with a glimpse or two of sunshine.

Top temperatures 13 to 15 Celsius but feeling cooler in the strong to gale force South Westerly winds.

The North West and West of Wales bearing the brunt of the gales. Forecast wind gusts 60 to 70mph.

Tomorrow night rain in the West and North West will spread across the rest of Wales. Some of it heavy with gales.

The rain will clear early on Friday leaving a drier and brighter day for Children in Need with some sunshine. The wind lighter as well.

However, more heavy rain and gales are expected over the weekend.

The flood line number 0845 988 1188.

Or take a look at the Environment Agency website.

On a lighter note, Aberhafesp Primary School are celebrating their 100th birthday with a special concert.

Congratulations to them and the weather should be dry on Friday evening with lighter winds!
