THE yellow warning for heavy rain is in place for parts of North Wales this afternoon - but Wrexham and Flintshire should miss the worst of it.

The warning, from 5pm until 4am tomorrow, includes Anglesey and Gwynedd but stops at Colwyn Bay.

The warning says: "A band of heavy rain, accompanied by strong and gusty winds, will move eastwards across Wales and southwest England into central and southern England this evening. 20-30 mm of rain could fall in a few hours with as much as 40-50 mm in a few spots in southwest England, South Wales and also north-western parts of Wales. Western parts of the warning area, except northwest Wales, will become drier from the west through the evening."

In Denbighshire, there is likely to be heavy rain after lunchtime. There will likely be more heavy rain tomorrow morning, but not so heavy as to require a warning.

The rest of the week's forecast is cloudy with sunny intervals.
