Natural Resources Wales is warning of the risk of localised flooding and disruption as the next band of heavy rainfall and stormy weather approaches.
Latest forecasts show a band of persistent heavy rainfall due to affect the whole of Wales from this evening (27/10) through and into tomorrow (28/10).
Whilst all of Wales can expect heavy rainfall, the worst affected areas are likely to be Powys, Denbighshire, Flintshire, and Wrexham. Significant rainfall totals of up to 60mm over a short duration overnight could lead to flooding from surface water and rivers.
The rainfall is likely to be accompanied by strong winds, which combined could cause localised flooding with fallen leaves, branches and debris causes blockages in drains, streams and rivers.
Ground remains saturated from previous rainfall and more rain is likely to trigger flood alerts with a risk of flood warnings on rivers across the country.
The strong winds expected late Sunday and during the early hours of Monday morning could cause large waves along the Pembrokeshire and South Wales coasts. Also sea spray along coastal paths and coastal roads is expected, so people in these areas are advised to take extra care.
Officers have been monitoring river levels closely and checking flood defences over the weekend and will continue to keep a close eye on the situation.
Staff will be on standby to deal with incidents and to remove any blockages in rivers which may pose a flood risk.
People are reminded that flood water can be extremely dangerous, and should not attempt to walk or drive through it unless instructed by the emergency services.
