A YELLOW warning for rain - with the possibility of some snow - has been issued for Friday by the Met Office.

The yellow warning runs from midnight until 3pm on Friday, with heavy rain expected to cause some disruption.

The warning says: "A band of rain, heavy at times, is expected to move north and east on Friday. 10 to 15 mm of rainfall is likely widely, with perhaps 30 mm in a few locations.

"With much of the rain falling in three hours some travel disruption is probable.

"Some snow is also likely to affect some higher routes and communities for a brief time."

One weather forecast model is predicting snowfall across much of Wales, with snow sticking for a while on higher ground.
