Storm Angus As The Met Office Issues Weather Warnings

North Wales is bracing itself for torrential rain and 50 miles per hour winds.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain covering every county bar Flintshire which will be in force from 3am on Monday until midnight.

The worst rainfall is predicted from midday onwards tomorrow

As much as two inches of rain could fall within a three to six hour period and a thundery showers are also a possibility.

The wet and windy conditions follow a cold weekend when up to two inches of snow fell in Snowdonia.

The rain is the remnants of Storm Angus weather front which battered the south coast of England over the weekend but which North Wales avoided.

No flood alerts or warnings are in place.

The Met Office said: “On Monday a further broad area of heavy, persistent rain will extend northwards across southwest England and Wales.

“The heaviest rain is expected to reach southwest England in the early hours of Monday and to reach north Wales by around the middle of the day.

“Although the more persistent rain should clear from southwest England into the afternoon, heavy and possibly thundery showers are likely to follow.”

North-easterly winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour could also affect areas for a short time, according to the warning.

On Thursday 94mph gusts battered Aberystwyth destroying several caravans and damaging a chapel.

Two floodlight pylons at Aberystwyth FC’s Park Avenue ground were also felled during the storms.
