The Met Office issues yellow weather warning for heavy rain in parts of Wales

A yellow weather warning has been issued for heavy rain in Wales on Wednesday.

The Met Office has cautioned about “prolonged episodes” of heavy rainfall, expected to persist throughout the day. This weather warning is effective from 6 am to 6 pm.

Anticipated impacts include potential travel disruptions due to spray and road flooding, potentially leading to extended journey times, along with the potential for disruptions to bus and train services. Additionally, there is a possibility of some homes and businesses experiencing flooding.

The Met Office has shared the following information on its website: “A generally wet morning with prolonged and heavy periods of rain at times, continuing throughout much of the day. Breezy at times and feeling cooler than of late. Maximum temperature 19 °C.”

The weather warning includes parts of Ceredigion, Conwy, Gwynedd and Powys and is for the period from 6am to 6pm.

The Met Office has also said that temperatures are expected to drop significantly this coming weekend.

According to their forecast, the entire UK will experience a substantial cooling trend, with daytime temperatures potentially dropping by as much as 10 degrees Celsius compared to earlier in the week, especially in southern England. Additionally, many central and northern regions are likely to experience the first widespread overnight frost of the season over the weekend.
