MET office have announced there is a possibility of adverse weather conditions throughout the week.

From 12:00 Tuesday 29th to 11:00 Wednesday 30th, a yellow weather warning of snow and ice is in place.

The forecast from MET office suggests initial rain later turning to snow, especially on hills, then turning icy.

What to expect:

  • Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services
  • Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
  • Probably some ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths

The more detailed forecast from MET office is as follows:

A band of rain will arrive across Wales, northern and western England through the middle of Tuesday, then move eastwards through Tuesday afternoon and evening. The rain will turn quickly to snow on hills, then also to low levels in places. 3 to 5 cm snow is likely above 200 metres, with up to 10 cm in a few places. A patchy covering of 1 to 2 cm is possible at low levels, although some places will see no snow at all. As skies clear overnight, ice is likely to form on some surfaces. In addition, wintry showers will follow into western areas on Wednesday morning, giving further slight accumulations of snow in a few places.
