COULD the dry spell be finally coming to an end in the Cardigan area as the Met Office issued a weather warning for Friday (July 13)?

Many places will remain dry but there is the potential for heavy and slow-moving thundery downpours in places and a yellow warning has been issued for the whole of Wales between 11am and 8pm.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Heavy showers, which will most likely become thundery in places, are expected to develop quite widely across parts of England and Wales later Friday morning and through the afternoon.

“Some of the showers are likely to become focused into slow-moving bands with some locations receiving around 20mm in an hour. As is the nature of showers however, many places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day.”

Where a storm hits, some flooding of homes and businesses is likely, perhaps leading to some damage to buildings. There is a good chance driving conditions will at times be affected by spray and standing water, leading to some minor journey delays.

Some short term loss of power and other services due to lightning strikes is possible.
