Second North Wales weather warning issued as forecasters warn of flood risk

Daily Post 5 days ago Owen Evans

A second weather warning has been issued for North Wales as forecasters warn heavy rain could cause flooding.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain, which comes into force at 12pm on Tuesday and remains in place until 6pm on Wednesday.

A weather warning for wind has already been issued by the agency.

The new warning covers Conwy, Gwynedd, Anglesey and Powys.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Rain across north Wales will become heavier later this morning and persist until later on Wednesday, leading to 30 to 50mm quite widely across the warning area, and locally 80 to 90mm across Snowdonia."

They warned that the downpours could cause spray and flooding on roads which would probably making journey times longer, with bus and train services probably affected.

They also said that flooding of "a few homes and businesses" was likely.

A separate weather warning for wind came into force on Monday night and remains in place until 6pm on Tuesday, and covers parts of every county apart from Wrexham.

The Met Office warned that gusts of up to 70mph could cause delays, large coastal waves and power cuts.
