THE region is set to contend with heavy rain today as flooding fears return.
Forecasters are predicting as much as 30mm (12ins) of rain could fall in higher areas of Flintshire and Wrexham today.
A flood warning remained in place yesterday on the Lower Dee Valley from Llangollen to Chester, with high water levels reported in the Farndon and Holt area.
Dave Britton, of the Met Office, said: “There is the potential for seeing up to 30mm of rainfall in upland areas.
“For the rest of the week we expect it to be rather unsettled. There could be rain again on Thursday and showers on Friday and Saturday.”
Despite flooding fears during the weekend, several Environment Agency flood warnings were no longer in place yesterday.
These included Rossett, Pontblyddyn, the Alyn catchment area and Bangor-on-Dee.
But during the weekend, the fire service was called to attend with flooding problems in or near properties in Worthenbury, Ruabon and Broughton.
With further rainfall now expected, Environment Agency Wales is advising people to take extra care as driving conditions are likely to be difficult.
They also advise those walking near the coast to be careful of waves and for no one to attempt to drive through floodwater.
Graham Hillier, from Environment Agency Wales, said: “Our teams have been working around the clock over the weekend to keep our rivers clear and to make sure that flood defences remain in good condition.
“With more rain on the way, we’re advising people to take precautions and be on their guard for flooding.
