Dangerous flooding is likely in parts of North Wales at the weekend with Storm Dennis set to batter the region

A week after Storm Ciara saw North Wales hit by 90mph winds and flooding, two new weather warnings are in place for Saturday.

An amber weather warning for rain is in place for Wales from 12pm on Saturday to 3pm on Sunday.

The Met Office warns of fast or deep floodwater "causing danger to life".

According to weather experts, Storm Dennis could become one of the deepest Atlantic low pressure systems in modern records.

A separate yellow warning for wind for the whole of Wales runs from 10am on Saturday until just before midnight on Sunday.

Traffic Wales is urging people to only travel if absolutely necessary. 

Jeremy Parr, head of food and incident risk management for Natural Respurces Wales, said:“We expect the worst of the rain on Saturday afternoon and overnight into Sunday, which could see many flood alerts and warnings issued.

“There is potential for significant impacts across Wales, from river flooding and from surface water. Transport and travel will likely be disrupted too. 

 “We urge people to stay safe and be careful this weekend – don’t be tempted to drive or walk through flood waters, you don’t know what lies beneath.

“Keep an eye on weather forecasts and visit our website for latest information on the flood warnings. You can find practical advice on flooding on our website too.”
