Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

A SE­VERE weather warn­ing was is­sued for parts of Wales yes­ter­day with the po­ten­tial for more flood­ing to hit parts of the south and west again to­day.

The Met Of­fice is­sued a yel­low weather warn­ing un­til early Sun­day morn­ing for heavy, thun­dery show­ers.

They added that some ar­eas are likely to see around 15mm of rain in less than an hour, with up to 30mm in two or three hours.

Three flood warn­ings have also been is­sued for south west Wales by Nat­u­ral Re­sources Wales.

Flood Alerts for pos­si­ble flood­ing have been is­sued for the Up­per Teifi, Lower Teifi and as well as Taf and Cynin.

Nat­u­ral Re­sources Wales say that the com­bi­na­tion of ground con­di­tions, ex­ist­ing river lev­els and fore­cast rain­fall quan­ti­ties gives a high risk of flood­ing of low-ly­ing land dur­ing the next 24 hours.

The weather warn­ings come after flash flood­ing hit Ceredi­gion on Fri­day.

Tal­sarn and ar­eas around Lam­peter, Llandy­sul and Newquay were af­fected.

In North Wales, bit­ter arc­tic winds are set to send tem­per­a­tures plum­met­ing to 11-12°C.
