'Be aware' warning of rain for much of Wales

The Met Office has warned of a possible risk of flooding.

Earlier this morning, the Met Office upgraded their weather warning to "yellow", meaning localised flooding is "likely" in the region.

Strong to gale force winds of 40 to 50mph are likely with some gusts of 60mph possible over coasts, hills and inland where showers occur.

The Met Office has warned that strong winds causing fallen trees, hard driving conditions and power outages could last until tonight (Tuesday).

The Met Office says people should expect "strong to gale force" winds, with gusts reaching 40-50 miles per hour and even 60 miles per hour over higher ground. The Midlands is likely to be worst affected during the afternoon.

Tomorrow (Wednesday June 7) will still see some strong winds but with plenty of sunshine pushing the temperature up a few degrees.

However, there is a possibility the wind could pick up again on Saturday.
