Heavy thundery showers could bring further flooding to two parts of south west Wales that have already been hit twice this week, forecasters warn.

The Met Office has issued a yellow - be aware - warning for Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire on Friday.

Both counties saw numerous flooding incidents last weekend as well as more downpours overnight into Wednesday.

The Met Office warning said the ground is still saturated following the rain which has previously fallen.

It said: "Where these more prolonged heavy showers occur there is an increased risk of surface water flooding."

The showers may become "aligned" as they move across south west Wales, forecasters say, producing spells of heavy rain that may last an hour or more.

The warning runs from 16:00 GMT on Friday until 06:00 GMT on Saturday.
