Snow flurries forecast by MET Office for parts of Wales next week

SOME parts of Wales are forecast to see snow showers next week .

According to the MET Office temperatures are set to dip and some places in Wales could see sleet and snow.

On Sunday, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf could see sleet and snow showers.

On Monday evening, Tuesday daytime and early on Wednesday, snow flurries and sleet have been predicted for Cardiff, Haverfordwest, Bangor and Aberystwyth.

The Met Office said: “Temperatures will drop throughout the weekend bringing with it wintry showers, with a possibility of snow on higher ground and sleet on lower ground.”

Temperatures could see lows of around -2 degrees in Wales next few weeks.

Deputy chief meteorologist, Chris Almond, said: “Although we’ve moved into meteorological Spring there will be a distinctly wintry feel to our weather next week.

“Very cold air will spread across the UK bringing snow showers even to sea level in the north on Monday and these snow showers could spread further south on Tuesday.

“With freezing overnight temperatures and the risk of ice it is likely weather warnings will be issued for Monday and Tuesday once the detail of potential impacts becomes clearer, so keep an eye on the Met Office forecast.”

BBC Wales forecaster Rhian Haf said: “By next week it will turn much colder with a northerly wind bringing Arctic air and some snow showers by Tuesday.”
