The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning as heavy rain in Flintshire, which they say could bring some travel disruption.

Rain, heavy and persistent at times, moved northeast across much of England and Wales during Thursday night.

The Met Office has said large parts of Wales will see heavy rain through Friday.

The rain will clear from the northwest through Friday afternoon and evening.

Widely 10-20 mm of rain is likely, but in the wettest spots 30-50 mm is possible, and some high ground of West Wales could see 70 mm.

All parts of the UK will turn much cooler by the weekend, with daytime temperatures potentially up to 10 C colder than earlier this week across southern England.

The first widespread overnight frost of the season is also likely across many central and northern areas over the weekend.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Brent Walker, said: “As we head through second half of this week cold air will push southwards across the country and there is a risk that showers over mountains of Scotland could turn wintry.”

“By the weekend we expect all regions of the UK to be in the cold airmass and overnight frosts are possible.”

“With high pressure continuing to dominate our weather early next week, it will start largely fine, settled, and cool by day, with cold nights and a risk of rural air frosts in places.”

“Any early morning mist or fog should clear quickly and there could be a few showers possible around some coasts at times.”
