The south of Wales could be hit by flooding tomorrow, the Met Office has warned.

Their yellow weather warning for heavy rain covers the south of Wales from the Gower peninsula to Monmouthshire from 2pm tomorrow to 7am on Monday.

The Met Office warn that areas of persistent and sometimes heavy rain may lead to localised flooding and travel disruption.

Those living in these areas can expect:

  • Spray and flooding will lead to difficult driving conditions and perhaps some road closures
  • Where flooding occurs, there may be delays or cancellations to train and bus services
  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
  • There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater

“Persistent rain, heavy and possibly thundery at times, will move across southern and southwestern areas of England and parts of south Wales through Sunday afternoon, persisting into Monday morning, before easing,” the Met Office said.

“20-40 mm is likely to fall quite widely across the area but a few places could see 60-80 mm over this period, including 15-25 mm within an hour. Such totals may cause travel disruption and some flooding.”

The heavy rain clouds are expected to move from east to west across Wales with the north of the country spared much of the bad weather.
