FEROCIOUS seas and strong winds are affecting the Conwy area.

The strong weather, a result of Storm Eleanor, have caused road closures with waves crashing onto promenades including Colwyn Bay and Deganwy.

A tidal flood alert is in force for areas along the North Wales coast from the Dee estuary to the East coast of Anglesey.

Areas affected in the Conwy County area include Llandudno North Shore, Llandudno, Llandudno West Shore, Penrhyn Bay and parts of Rhos on Sea and Mochdre.

Other areas to be affected by these weather warnings include Gronant to Tanlan, Prestatyn Beach Road, Prestatyn and East Rhyl, Rhyl Splash Point, Rhyl West Parade Seafront, Rhyl Marina Quay, Kinmel Bay Promenade and Sandy Cove, Towyn, Belgrano and Pensarn Seafront, Towyn, Belgrano and Pensarn, Abergele Seafront and Abergele Sea Road.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning of wind for Wales.

A chief forecaster's assessment said: "Storm Eleanor is now over the North Sea and will continue to move slowly away eastwards through today. "Although winds are not expected to be as strong as Tuesday evening and last night it has left a swath of strong winds in its wake.

"Gusts on Wednesday morning are expected to reach 45 to 50 mph in places inland while along the coasts gusts as high as 65 mph are likely."

The warning is in force until 7pm tonight.
