MORE rain is on the way this week - with flood alerts issued by the Met Office, which have been in place since the weekend.  

Across Gwent today - Blaenau Gwent, Newport, Torfaen, Monmouthshire, Caerphilly - you will see a dry morning, with some clear skies developing and sunny spells.

However, cloudier conditions will soon spread eastwards from the afternoon with rain soon following, turning heavy at times - maximum temperature of 13 °C.

Tuesday looks to be cloudy, with patchy light rain being seen by most throughout the entire day, particularly to any northern high ground.


It is set for a wet morning Wednesday, before becoming more settled and dry. This will continue into Thursday with temperatures becoming colder - turning wet again into Friday.

In the Newport area, a flood alert is still in place for the Usk estuary area, covering parts of the city centre as well as Caerleon.

A separate flood alert has been issued for the Wye estuary area in Monmouthshire, stretching from Chepstow in the south to Redbrook in the north.
