Flood alerts have come into force as experts warn that “significant” flooding could take place in North Wales.
Natural Resources Wales has warned people to expect surface water flooding, as well as issues around rivers and the coast, as stormy weather hits North Wales.
The region is braced for four days of downpours, caused by the remnants of two ex-hurricanes, while travel disruption and damage to property is possible.
Weather warnings are in place for several parts of North Wales from Thursday until Sunday.
The Met Office has warned of significant rainfall over the coming days.
Met Office chief meteorologist Frank Saunders said: “This week has been fairly unsettled and we’ll see this typical autumnal weather continuing over the weekend, with heavy rain and strong winds expected to bring disruption and risk of flooding to some areas.
“Several yellow rain warnings are in place from today until Sunday, covering parts of northwest England, Wales and western parts of Scotland.
“Across the warning areas rainfall totals of 30-40mm can be expected quite widely by the end of Friday, whilst over the hills and mountains of north Wales and Cumbria, where rain will be heaviest, more than 100mm is possible.”
Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Martin Young, added: “Saturday will be very wet and windy for many northern and western parts of the country as low-pressure sweeps northeastwards past northwest Britain.
“Another system quickly follows on Sunday that contains the remnants of ex-Hurricane Zeta, bringing further heavy rain and strong winds.
“Given that this is falling on already saturated ground from what has been a wet October, there is an increased risk of flooding in some warnings areas.
“We will continue to monitor the situation over the weekend and may update the rain warnings, and possibly add wind warnings, as details in the timing and potential impacts become clearer.”
Here’s the full list of flood alerts currently in place.
- Parts of Dolgellau from Marian Mawr Recreation Ground to Arran Road.
