A MET Office yellow alert weather warning for heavy rain is in place this morning (Wednesday, November 7) for the Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn areas.

The warning runs until noon and a Met Office spokesman said: “Persistent, and at times heavy rain will develop over parts of south Wales.

“During this period 15-25 mm of rain is expected widely with totals of 40-60 mm over some hills exposed to the strong southerly winds. Some intense bursts of rain, as well as autumn leaf fall blocking drains, increases the likelihood of impacts.”

Spray and flooding of roads is likely and drivers are being advised to take care.

The wet and windy weather is expected to continue for the next few days, with Friday looking particularly stormy, with 50mph gales currently forecast.
