A YELLOW weather warning for wind is in place for Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd.

The Met Office have issued the warning for Wednesday (September 19) between 6am and 10pm.

Storm Ali will bring a spell of very windy weather with gusts of 50-60 mph possible inland.

On Thursday, there is a yellow warning for rain between 4am and 10pm.

A statement on the Met Office said: "An area of persistent and heavy rain is expected to develop across Wales and North West England."

Storm Ali is the first storm to be named by the Met Office and Met Éireann this season.

Chief forecaster Laura Paterson said: “Storm Ali is expected to bring a spell of very strong winds to northern parts of the UK through Wednesday, particularly Northern Ireland, central and southern Scotland and the far northwest of England.

"As this is the first spell of very strong winds of the season, and given that most trees are still in full leaf, we are likely to see some dangerous conditions with falling trees and flying branches and other debris likely.

"Strong winds will be accompanied by heavy, squally showers.”
