Residents in mid Wales are being warned to expect heavy rain after the Met Office expanded its yellow weather warning for a further two days.

Periods of heavy rain are expected to affect most of Wales and north-west England from Thursday to Sunday.

Heaviest rainfall is expected across hills and the Cambrian Mountains. Strong winds are likely with potential for leaf fall to exacerbate flooding in places.

Towns such as Newtown, Welshpool, Machynlleth, Llandrindod Wells, Builth Wells and Llanfyllin and their surrounding villages are being warned to expect heavy rain plus potential floods and disruption.

The Met Office said that outbreaks of rain will spread across the UK during Sunday with prolonged spells of heavy rain likely across Wales and north-west England.

Following heavy rain in these areas during previous days, further flooding impacts and disruption to transport is likely.
