Flintshire: Met Office issues yellow weather warning for rain
Heavy rainfall is predicted to cause potential flooding and significant disruptions in several places including Flintshire, according to a Met Office yellow warning.
The weather warning indicates that the rain, commencing at 1am on Tuesday, 12th September 2023, will continue until 1pm today.
Motorists and commuters are being cautioned that spray and flooding on roads could make journey times longer than usual.
Public transport services, including buses and trains, may also face disruptions, leading to extended travel durations. There’s a possibility of flooding in a few homes and businesses, and residents are urged to take the necessary precautions to mitigate any risks.
The Met Office states: “Outbreaks of rain are expected to become heavier and more persistent during the early hours of Tuesday, extending east across northeast Wales, the north Midlands, parts of northern England and Lincolnshire. 20 to 30 mm rain is likely quite widely within around six hours, with perhaps as much as 40 to 50 mm in a few places. This is likely to cause some flooding and disruption in some locations. The rain is likely to turn more showery during Tuesday afternoon.” Spotted something? Got a story?
