Pembrokeshire: Snow if forecast for Jan 13

A YELLOW weather warning has been issued by the Met Office as Pembrokeshire could be hit by snow on Tuesday evening.

Showers of hail, sleet and snow on Tuesday evening and overnight are likely to leave a covering of snow of 3 – 6 cm in places.

Icy patches could also form on untreated surfaces and the public should be aware of the risk of tricky driving conditions.

A cold westerly air-stream will spread across the area on Tuesday evening, allowing frequent showers in the overnight period to fall as snow.

There is some uncertainty over how much snow will settle at low levels, and many places within the yellow area may miss the snow altogether. However, where snow does occur it is likely to be heavy and produce a covering quite quickly.

Coastal areas facing west or south-west will probably miss most of the snow, but hail and lightning will be hazards here, along with gusty winds.
