Parts of Powys could be hit with high levels of rain over the next few days as the Met Office issues a weather warning.

Warnings of heavy rain have come in the form of a yellow Weather Warning, issued by the Met Office for South Wales, on the evening of Monday, July 8, and the early hours of Tuesday, July 9.

According to the warning, “persistent and heavy” rain is expected in the evening, which the Met Office adds could lead to “some impacts on travel and infrastructure”. In Powys, it's particularly expected to affect the Brecon Beacons, but stops short of Builth Wells and southern Radnorshire.

The Met Office said people can expect: “Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer.

"Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer. Some interruption to power supplies and other services likely.


“After a generally cloudy day with showers, more persistent rain will push north this evening and overnight.

"Rain will be persistent and heavy at times, particularly so for hills, moors and headlands exposed to brisk winds.

“Most of the warning area will see 20-40 mm of rain, with as much as 60-70 mm possible for some areas, for example Dartmoor and Exmoor. Rain should ease from the south during the night, clearing to scattered showers by morning.”
