Heavy and persistent rain will bring a risk of flooding and disruption to parts of the North Wales this weekend the Met Office has warned.
Storm Alex, a low-pressure system, has brought wet and windy weather to southern parts of England and Wales today, Friday.


Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the met Office said:
“Storm Alex has clipped the southern edge of Britain today bringing heavy rain and strong winds to the country.
"The highest gust of 71 mph was at Berry Head on the Devon coast, but winds are now easing for most. 
"Away from the south it is a more pleasant day, with light winds and bright spells for much of northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“However, as the strong winds and rain associated with Storm Alex clear away from Britain later tonight, another low-pressure system will move towards the UK from the east bringing further very heavy rain to many areas over the weekend as well as some strong winds.”
