The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning covering North Wales as the area is threatened by severe downpours and powerful gales.

MET Eireann have predicted more heavy rain and strong winds with gusts reaching up to 130km/h for Wednesday.

He said: "We have a yellow warning for wind in the west of the United Kingdom for today and tomorrow".

It read: "Heavy and persistent rainfall is expected from Wednesday afternoon".

The Met Office has issued a warning for strong winds across much of Northern Ireland on Wednesday.

Storm Diana is set to hit the United Kingdom today, bringing heavy rain and gales of up to 70mph.

This is due to the gale force winds associated with Storm Diana.

Predicted gusts during Wednesday

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council has advised the public not to visit forests, country parks and coastal sites "until the high winds subside". Yet more rain and strong winds expected next Saturday night and on Sunday.

Storm Diana, named by the official Portuguese Meteorological Authority (IPMA), will do away with the current cold spell and bring wetter and windier conditions to the UK.

"There remains a small chance that this system will intensify as it moves northeastwards bringing even stronger winds to southwest England, Wales and on into northern England and southeast Scotland".

The second band of low pressure following in Diana's wake is forecast to slam into the United Kingdom on Thursday, bringing more wet and windy weather and "danger to life" tidal waves. That moves over England during Thursday morning rush hour.

"There is significant uncertainty over how severe this system will be, but a wet and windy day is expected regardless".

"The worst place is on the west coast".
