Forecasters anticipate disruptive snow in various regions of Wales for multiple days next week.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice on Tuesday, covering much of north and mid Wales. An additional yellow warning for Wednesday and Thursday predicts further snow and ice, encompassing north, mid, and west Wales.
Projections suggest that 2-5cm (0.8-2in) of snow may accumulate in certain areas, with low-lying areas potentially experiencing up to 10cm (4in) of snow. Tuesday’s warning specifically includes Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Powys, and Wrexham, along with significant portions of the Midlands, northern England, and Scotland.
The Met Office highlights the likelihood of snow showers starting in the morning. As the day progresses, a more organized mix of rain, sleet, and snow is expected to move eastward, with additional showers to follow. There remains some uncertainty regarding the track of prolonged snow, and it is plausible that lower elevations across Wales and northern England may experience a temporary transition to rain.
The advisory for Wednesday and Thursday covers Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire, Powys, and Wrexham, along with sections of northern England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.
The Met Office predicts the onset of snow showers across Wales later on Wednesday, with expectations for these showers to persist “during Wednesday night and well into Thursday.”
Forecasters anticipate potential disruption over all three days, with travel possibly impacted by the snow.
