Live updates as inches of rain forecast for Wales amid dozens of flood alerts

More than 30 flood alerts are in place today (November 1) as ex-Hurricane Zeta threatens to unleash up to three inches of rain across Wales.

It marks a weekend of dangerous conditions after ex-Hurricane Epsilon flooded north Wales on Friday and Storm Aiden slammed into the country on Saturday.

Now, low pressure containing remnants of Zeta is forecast to bring spells of wet and windy weather to much of Wales through Monday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning ahead of the worst of the weather on Sunday afternoon.

It’s set to come into force at 12pm and will last until 8am on Monday, covering every county in Wales except Flintshire.

According to the Met Office: “Outbreaks of rain will spread across the UK during Sunday with prolonged spells of heavy rain developing during the afternoon in many western areas.”

A further 20-30mm of rain are likely to fall widely, and as much as 60-90mm are possible over the higher ground in Wales.

After heavy rain on Saturday and Sunday, the downpours are expected to cause additional flooding problems for swollen rivers and areas with poor drainage.

Severe flooding has already been reported in north Wales after the River Conwy burst its banks earlier this weekend.

Travel disruption was reported in areas of Gwynedd and Conwy after a number of roads were closed or badly flooded, including the A498 in Beddgelert and the A4086 in both directions from Pont Pen-y-benglog to Llanberis.
