Wales braced for heavy rain
The Environment Agency is warning people to be vigilant as heavy rain is expected overnight and into Thursday in south east Wales.
Agency officers said rain will persist overnight in mid and west Wales today and Thursday and flood alerts could be issued for some rivers in all of these areas.
There is also a risk of localised flooding of roads and low lying land from blocked drains, ditches and small streams.
Agency officers are currently working in the area to check that rivers are clear of blockages and that defences are in good working order.
