AN UPDATED weather warning is in place for heavy rain across the whole of Wales for Thursday and Friday, October 29.

The Met Office said up to 60mm (2.3in) was widely forecast, with up to 100mm (4in) over parts of north-west Wales from 06:00 BST on Thursday.

The yellow warning, which is in place until 15:00 on Friday afternoon, covers Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.

The warning start time was pushed back to Thursday morning, and the end time was brought forward to Friday afternoon.

"Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely," warned a spokesperson for the Met Office.

"Bus and train services will be probably affected, with journey times taking longer. Spray and flooding on roads will probably make journey times longer."

The forecaster said spells of heavy rain will spread southeast across Wales through Thursday, before clearing east through Friday.

The Met Office said: "Thursday will see rain in the west, occasionally heavy, but turning increasingly wet across the rest of the country during the morning with persistent and, at times, heavy rain.

"Strong winds, easing later, with a maximum temperature of 16 °C.

"Tonight will remain cloudy, with persistent rain for many areas, heavy over high ground. Breezy at first but becoming calmer by morning. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

"Friday will see outbreaks of heavy rain will continue through the morning. Turning drier and brighter by the afternoon with the odd shower and feeling fresher too. Maximum temperature 13 °C.

"The outlook for Saturday to Monday is changeable over the weekend with periods of rain, heavy at times, with some drier and sunnier spells.

"Windy with a chance of gales. Feeling colder than of late."
