IT IS set to be a very wet start to the weekend for west Wales after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for parts of Wales.

The weather warning – for rain – is set to come into force at 00.00am on Saturday, November 18 and will be in place for 10 hours until 10am the same day.

The warning doesn’t cover Ceredigion but it does include Lampeter and north Pembrokeshire.

The forecast for Lampeter is heavy rain for the majority of the morning, before turning to showers throughout the rest of the day, although there is some sun predicted during the showers. Crymych is expected to have some heavy rain in the morning in line with the yellow weather warning, but turning to showers in the afternoon and then cloudy in the evening.

Despite the weather warning not being in place for Newcastle Emlyn, heavy rain is predicted during the time it is in force but is set to be cloudy for the rest of the day. The weather warning isn’t in place for Cardigan, but the forecast shows heavy rain for the start of the day and, like Newcastle Emlyn, turning to cloudy but dry, although there might be some sun around 3pm according to the Met Office.

The Met Office advises that spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, that there could be delays or cancellations to train and bus services and flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.
