Heavy rainfall combined with snowmelt across the hills is being predicted to cause flooding across the county, causing the Met Office to issue an amber warning.

Temperatures are likely to hit around 10-11℃ on Tuesday and Wednesday, before dropping back down to a more consistent 6℃ by Thursday ahead of the weekend.
