This afternoon I received an e-mail from John Norman who lives in Bwlchgwyn in Wrexham. He reckons there was 11cm of lying snow in the village earlier today, about 4 inches!

I think we have seen the worst of the snow for the time being but there is more rain on the way tonight - some heavy too, so also a risk of flooding.

It will also turn misty and murky with some fog patches as milder air moves over colder ground but temperatures tonight will remain above freezing.

Tomorrow it's an improving story as the rain first thing will clear away so we'll all see some sunshine.

It will remain mostly dry but you may catch a shower later in the afternoon. Top temperatures 4 to 7 Celsius with a moderate to fresh westerly breeze so it will feel a bit chilly.

If you're off to Chepstow Racecourse tomorrow for the Welsh National then you're in luck as it will turn into a nice day, becoming dry and sunny. Good luck to 'Dream Alliance'!

Tomorrow night will bring a few scattered showers but some clear spells too. Temperatures will generally remain above freezing but a slight frost is possible in places, sheltered from the wind.

On Sunday scattered showers will die away leaving most of the country dry with sunny spells. Highs of between 5 to 7 Celsius. The wind will ease during the afternoon, falling light overnight with a slight frost developing.

Make the most of the dry weather and sunshine over the weekend because it's not going to last...

Next week it's all change as it turns milder with south-westerly winds and spells of wet and windy weather from the Atlantic.

    Comment number 1.

    The current (Sunday 9 Jan, 2pm) BBC Weather website map for Cardiff/SE Wales on Mon 10 Jan, 9am, indicates heavy rain, but the symbol box for the 24 hour forecast for the same day/time indicates white cloud; I've noticed that such inconsistencies are not unusual, and am somewhat confused as to what to believe; can you give an explanation, please.

    Thank you
