RESIDENTS across North Wales have been warned to expect potential flooding and disruption this week due to Storm Christoph.

The storm will bring "multiple hazards" to the UK including heavy rain initially, the Met Office has said.

A yellow weather warning for rain is in place across the whole of North Wales from midnight on Monday until midday on Thursday.

The Met Office has said homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings and fast flowing or deep floodwater is possible, causing a danger to life.

Delays or cancellations to train and bus services are possible and some communities may be cut off by flooded roads.

An Amber National Severe Weather Warning for rain has also been issued for parts of northern, central and eastern England.

Chief Meteorologist Dan Suri said: “Following a cold spell where the main hazard was snow, our focus now turns to notably heavy rain moving across the UK this week. 
"Some locations could see over 100mm of rain falling through the course just a couple of days with up to 200mm possible over higher ground. 

"These amounts of rainfall along with snow melt present a real threat of flooding and people should keep a close eye on flood warnings from Natural Resources Wales.

“As the system moves away into the North Sea Wednesday night and Thursday morning there will be strong winds along the east coast for a time. 

"Meanwhile, colder air coming southwards into the weather system brings the risk of further snow on the back edge of this system. "Temperatures will gradually fall across the UK through the end of the week and into the weekend bringing a return to widespread overnight frosts.”
