The worst of the heavy rain is expected to clear Wales on Saturday but low-risk flood warnings remain in place.

Following heavy downpours on Friday evening and Saturday morning, rainclouds are set to move eastwards.

Natural Resources Wales has flood alerts in place for Anglesey and the Glaslyn and Dwyryd catchment in Gwynedd for Saturday morning.

There are also low-risk flood warnings in place in eight counties in north, west and south Wales.

A yellow "low risk" warning has been issued for Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Swansea and Neath Port Talbot.

This warning is not expected to last into Sunday.

The return of wet weather comes after a September that is set to be the UK's driest since records began in 1910.
