NEWPORT and Gwent endured a weekend of torrid weather, with heavy rain falling across the region for much of Saturday and Sunday.

The question on everyone’s lips this morning is a simple one - can we expect more of the same, or are conditions set to improve?

According to the Met Office, the region is set to see more heavy rain.

So much so, that a yellow eather warning has been issued covering much of South Wales.

While Monday has started out much brighter and drier than the weekend for the most part – conditions look set to take a turn for the worse later in the day.

In Newport, there are no prolonged periods of heavy rainfall predicted until late in the day – from around 8pm onwards.

There are also scattered showers throughout the day.

Temperatures are unlikely to rise higher than 15 degrees in the city at any point either.

All in all, the day looks set to be the very definition of a grey and gloomy autumn Monday.

What about Gwent?

If things sounded bleak in Newport, conditions look set to be worse in Gwent.

According to the forecast, there looks set to be more heavy rain to the north of the region, setting in much earlier.

From around midday, the rain is set to fall, and by 2pm, this is set to become a great deal heavier.

What’s worse, there is little to no let-up expected either.

Rain, be it heavy or light, is predicted in the Gwent area virtually non-stop until 5pm on Tuesday (October 5).

Elsewhere, the forecast in Monmouthshire looks set to mirror conditions in Newport for the most part.
