IT IS set to be a very wet start to the weekend for west Wales after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for parts of Wales.

The weather warning – for rain – is set to come into force at 00.00am on Saturday, November 18 and will be in place for 10 hours until 10am the same day.

The warning covers most of Carmarthenshire including Ammanford, Llandeilo, Llandovery and Cross Hands as well as most of Neath Port Talbot including Ystradgynlais, the Amman Valley, Pontarddawe and Pontarddulais.

Despite the weather warning, the Met Office is predicting that during the day, there will be sunshine and showers, with the heaviest rain predicted for the early hours of the morning and then the sunshine and showers to be throughout the afternoon and evening in Llandovery with up to a 90 per cent chance of rain in the morning, lowering to 30 per cent at some times throughout the day.

Llandeilo is predicted to have a cloudy but dry majority of the day, with the heavy rain set to finish around 7am, some showers until 9am and then cloudy until more showers come in at 8pm. The chance of rain throughout the day is around 10 per cent, with the early hours having a predicted chance of rain of 95 per cent. This is the same forecast for Ammanford and Pontardawe.

The Met Office advises that spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, that there could be delays or cancellations to train and bus services and flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.
