THE MET Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain in the Vale which could lead to localised flooding.

Forecasters are predicting heavy rain showers to fall this afternoon (Wednesday), with the yellow warning remaining in force until 10pm.

The slow moving showers could lead to localised flooding in some areas and could create difficult driving conditions.

The Met Office has said 15 to 25mm of rain could fall in just an hour. There is also the possibility of hail and lightning.
