The Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ weather alert this afternoon, Tuesday October 6 – as heavy rain with possible thunderstorms head into Flintshire.

Long spells of rain, heavy at times are expected to last throughout the evening and overnight with a risk of thunder.

There are warnings in place for much of Wales and the North West of England.

The Met Office Chief Forecaster says:

“A slack area of low pressure will move slowly across southern Britain today, bringing unstable air and the potential for thundery showers. The light winds mean that the downpours will be slow-moving as well as intense in some regions, with the possibility of 15 mm or more falling in less than an hour.”

Wednesday morning will start quite wet but will dry up from around 10am.
