The police have issued a fresh warning to motorists to avoid roads in low-lying areas because of rainwater flooding.

Motorists were in particular, warned to avoid Fontana Road in Fontana, the area around Xlendi and Marsalforn Valley, all in Gozo.

In Malta, readers reported some flooding  in Pembroke, Balzan, Qawra, Valley Road Msida, and Tal-Barrani near Tarxien but the situation cleared quickly.

The Civil Protection Department had earlier urged motorists to avoid low-lying areas.

The Met. office late in the morning warned that a severe weather system was developing to the south west of Malta and was moving very slowly towards the island .

As a result Malta was expected to be hit by thundery showers between noon and 1 p.m.
