Met Office Issues Amber And Yellow Warnings

YELLOW WARNING FOR RAIN:

Issued at: 11:50 on Sunday 25 November 2012

Valid from: 00:05 on Monday 26 November 2012

Valid to: 23:59 on Monday 26 November 2012

Persistent, occasionally heavy, rain is expected to affect the area during Monday. The heaviest rain is likely to be during the morning, with the rain tending to ease later in the day. The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding.

A frontal system is expected to become slow moving across the area. Whilst the rain is not expected to be particularly heavy in most parts, persistence will allow accumulations to build up with 10-20 mm widely, but more than 30-40 mm in places. Over northwest Wales totals of more than 50 mm are likely locally. Given the saturated nature of the ground, some localised flooding is likely.

AMBER WARNING FOR RAIN: 

Issued at: 11:39 on Sunday 25 November 2012

Valid from: 06:00 on Monday 26 November 2012

Valid to: 23:00 on Monday 26 November 2012

Rain persisting through Monday will allow large totals to build up across the area. The wettest period will be during the first half of the day, though rain will continue through the afternoon and evening too. The public are advised to be aware of the risk of flooding.

A depression crossing southern parts will maintain a feed of moist air within a slow moving frontal zone. Through the period 50-70 mm could build up even over some low-lying areas. Rain will set in on Sunday night, though with significant totals not expected to accumulate till well into Monday morning.
