The Environment Agency Wales warns of further localised flooding problems in Wales
PEOPLE are being warned to be prepared for further localised flooding as more heavy rainfall is expected in Wales tomorrow.
The Environment Agency Wales made the call as forecasts show a band of persistent rainfall will hit most parts of Wales.
The weather front will affect the country during early morning and the rain is set to continue throughout the day.
It will clear by the evening in most parts of Wales but there could be rain during the night in parts of south Wales.

Strong winds combined with high tides could lead to large waves and spray overtopping across the Welsh coastline.
Over the weekend, a number of homes were hit by flooding.
One flood warning and seven flood alerts remained in place today.
River levels are high because of the recent rainfall and more flood warnings could be issued, along with flood alerts for the whole of the country.
Agency bosses have called on people to take extra care as driving conditions may be difficult.
And motorists along with walkers close to the coastline should also be careful of sea spray from waves.
Graham Hillier, from Environment Agency Wales said flood water was extremely dangerous and people should not attempt to either walk or drive through flood water.
He said: "Our teams have been working around the clock over the weekend to keep our rivers clear and to make sure that flood defences remain in good condition ahead of further rainfall.
"With more rain on the way, we're advising people to take precautions and be on their guard for flooding.
"Anyone concerned about flooding in their area can phone Floodline on 0845 988 1188 or visit our website for advice on how to prepare or to find out if free flood warnings are available in their area."
