News Hightown-Flooding

A yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of North Wales this weekend.

Tomorrow heavy rain is forecast for much of North Wales, with Wrexham issued with a weather warning for Saturday. The warning is valid from 12:15am on Saturday morning to 11:45pm Saturday night.

A yellow weather warning on the MET Office means ‘Be Aware’, with heavy rain and flooding forecast for much of the UK.

The warning on the MET Office states: “An area of rain is expected to push north across the UK through Saturday. The rain will be persistent and sometimes heavy, especially across western areas at first, and later over northern areas. There remains some uncertainty in the eastward extent across England and Wales, and then, during the afternoon and evening, how far the rain will push into Scotland: there is the possibility that the warning area will be revised again, either later today or early on Saturday.

“The rain should clear much of southwest England and then parts of south Wales during the day. Strong winds will present an additional hazard later in the day along areas adjoining the northern part of the Irish Sea.

“The public are advised to be aware of the risk of disruption to travel and outdoor activities due to localised surface water flooding.”

Last Saturday heavy downpours caused flash floods in some parts of Wrexham – particularly in the town centre.

A quick look at the weather forecast for next week suggests that Sunday is set to be slightly sunnier, before the heavy rain returns on Monday and Tuesday.
