NORTH EAST Wales is bracing itself for yet another spell of wet and windy weather as the region has been caught between two Met Office weather warnings.

The national weather service declared a yellow warning for rain across much of north and west Wales today (Wednesday), which extends eastwards as far as Ruthin, Denbigh and Llangollen.

This latest warning adds to one that was announced yesterday by the Met Office, covering parts of northern England down to around Manchester.

These warnings have forecast that rain is likely to be heavy on Wednesday and Thursday, especially over high ground, and could lead to flooding and travel disruption.

In parts of Flintshire, the rain is set to begin from around 4pm, while winds look like they will gradually worsen from the same time.

Gusts are currently expected to reach up to 50 miles per hour until finally beginning to die down over the weekend.

In Wrexham, meanwhile, the worst of the rain is set to come on Thursday morning, although the high winds could go on through the weekend with gusts of up to 40mph predicted on Sunday.

Wrexham Council have warned people to take notice of safety warnings ahead of the upcoming spell of bad weather. 

The rainfall is further bad news for Bangor-on-Dee which is currently surrounded by flood water, while the people of Pontblyddyn will hope their drains will be able to cope this time around.
