Storm Abigail sparks Wales wide flood alert

Winds of up to 60mph could hit Snowdon as Storm Abigail sparks flood fears

Heavy rain in North Wales
The heavy rain has already put today's Wrexham FC clash with Torquay United in doubt.

A second pitch inspection is due in the next half hour on the south coast, to see if the game will go-ahead.

John Griffiths, a forecaster for MeteoGroup, said: “There is a big band of rain that’s pushing across the country north and east today. It will be quite heavy rain in place and there is a risk of thunder and fairly strong winds.

“There could be gusts of up to 55mph or 60mph in really exposed areas. Snowdon, parts of Cornwall and the west coast could see the highest gusts.

“The rain is going to clear away later in the afternoon and once it does it will be a fairly dry night.”

In September, the Met Office and Met Eireann announced a pilot project to name storms that may be blowing this way this autumn and winter and were inundated with public responses.

The winning names included Abigail, Barney, Clodagh, Desmond, Eva and Frank.

A storm will be named when it is deemed to have the potential to cause a substantial impact in the UK and-or Ireland.
