Yellow weather warning issued for rain in Wales

Heavy rain is expected to extend over Wales and southwest England starting early Wednesday morning.

Precipitation levels are anticipated to range from 15-25 mm in most areas, increasing to 50-70 mm over elevated terrain. Given already saturated ground in certain areas, this is likely to result in some disturbances.

This has led to The Met Office issuing a yellow warning for rain across South and West Wales.

The rain is forecasted to move eastward and clear by the afternoon.

What to expect

  • A few homes and businesses flooded
  • Bus and train services affected with journeys taking longer
  • Spray and flooding on roads will make journey times longer
  • Some interruption to power supplies and other services

What should I do? 

Check if your property could be at risk of flooding. If so, consider preparing a flood plan and an emergency flood kit.

Give yourself the best chance of avoiding delays by checking road conditions if driving, or live bus and train timetables, amending your travel plans if necessary.

People cope better with power cuts when they have prepared for them in advance. It’s easy to do; consider gathering torches and batteries, a mobile phone power pack and other essential items.

Be prepared for weather warnings to change quickly: when a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area.
