All of Wales will see more wet and windy weather tomorrow, with warnings that flooding and wind damage could be possible.

A brief period of heavy rain, thunderstorms and very gusty winds may cause some disruption on Wednesday morning, the Met Office have said.

“An area of heavy rain and thunderstorms will move quickly eastwards across Wales and southwestern England into parts of central, southern and eastern England during Wednesday morning,” a spokesperson said.

“Many areas will see a spell of rain whilst some places will be affected by thunderstorms bringing a brief period of heavy rain, lightning, and strong, gusty winds with hail also affecting some spots.

“Gusts will tend to peak at 40-50 mph, but whilst very unlikely in any one place, much stronger winds are possible here and there, then potentially damaging some structures.”

The yellow warning for Wales lasts from 4am to 12pm.

They said that:

  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds
  • Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
  • Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
  • There is a small chance of damage to trees by strong and gusty winds

The yellow warning extends over all of Wales, Cornwall, the south west of England and parts of the midlands.
