Torrential rain and strong winds are set to hit North Wales this weekend.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain for Friday and Saturday, and one for wind for Saturday and Sunday, as Storm Jorge approaches the UK.

The rain warning covers Wrexham, Denbighshire, Conwy, Gwynedd and Powys from 6am on Friday (February 28) to 6am on Saturday (February 29).

The Met Office has warned of potential flooding in these areas, with people expected to face major disruption on the roads and railways.

Communities could be cut off by flooded roads and face power outages, forecasters warn.

The wind warning covers all of North Wales and comes into force at noon on Saturday (February 29) and remains in place until noon on Sunday (March 1).
