Wales is bracing itself for heavy rain and flooding across the country as Storm Denis sweeps in.

Some parts of the country could see up to six inches of rain over the weekend as yellow and amber weather warnings are in force.

The storm is expected to bring widespread, heavy and persistent rain across much of the country on Saturday, February 15 and Sunday, February 16.



Heavy rain is on the way

Yellow and amber weather warnings are in place as the system develops in the North Atlantic before tracking eastward toward the UK.

Welsh weather forecaster Derek Brockway tweeted: “Storm Dennis rainfall a concern this weekend. Extremely wet on higher ground. 120 to 140mm in the south (4 to 6″). Flooding likely given the ground is saturated.”

The heavy rain comes after Storm Ciara battered the country last weekend bringing widespread disruption.

These weather forecasts show the “total accumulated precipitation” areas in Wales will see over the weekend. The numbers refer to millimetres of rain.

Rain is expected to be heavier in localised areas.

Natural Resources Wales said river and surface water flooding is “possible widely” across Wales from later on Saturday through to Sunday.

Chances of flooding are higher in upland areas of south Wales.

They said there is a “medium risk” of flooding over Saturday and Sunday, returning to “low risk” on Monday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain covering all of Wales, and an amber warning covering a large part of the country.

Forecasters have warned that homes and businesses could be flooded, and delays or cancellations to public transport are possible.

Spray and flooding could cause difficult driving conditions and some communities could be cut off by floods.
