Winds gusting up to 50mph are expected to hit as the remains of ex-hurricane Bertha continue to sweep across Wales.

The Met Office issued a yellow "be aware" warning for wind in Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham.

One flood warning and four flood alerts are also in place from Natural Resources Wales.

All coastal areas are likely to see strong winds, as are areas on high ground such as Snowdon and the Brecon Beacons.

It comes after torrential downpours covered much of the country overnight and through Sunday.

Heavy rain has moved north eastwards but downpours should still be expected.

One flood warning was in place for Llanddulas, Conwy, and four flood alerts were issued for Crofty, north Gower, north Wales coast, Usk Estuary and Wye Estuary in Monmouthshire.

Earlier on Sunday, firefighters in south Wales attended incidents at a house in Cranbrook Street, Cardiff, and two in Newport.

Strong winds also brought down a tree on the A4232 between Atlantic Wharf and Knox Road in Cardiff around 16.31 BST.

Mid and West Wales fire crews were called to two flooding incidents in St Davids, Pembrokeshire.

Anyone near rivers in the Ewenny and Vale of Glamorgan areas should also take care.

BBC Wales weather presenter Owain Wyn Evans said the rain will continue to be heavy and scattered at times as the downpours move over Powys, Denbighshire and Flintshire on Sunday afternoon.

"The wind will hit the coastal path areas along the west and south of Wales and on high ground, such as the Brecon Beacons," he added.

"Gusts are expected to be in excess of 50mph."
