There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life and where flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services. The Met Office has also warned of spray and flooding which could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

In addition there is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads and of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses.

The Met Office warning reads:
“Periods of heavy rain are expected to develop across Wales and northwest England during Thursday and Friday.”

“Accumulations of 30-40 mm can be expected widely, whilst areas of higher ground exposed to strong southwesterly winds are likely to see 50-80 mm.”

“The heaviest rainfall, however, is expected to be across the hills and mountains of northwest Wales where 100-130 mm of rainfall is possible by the end of Friday.”
