Another cold snap

Tagged with:

It looks like the thermals and de-icer will come in handy this week. It's turning colder again with Arctic winds bringing a mixed bag of weather - wintry showers and gales, sunshine and overnight frosts.

We're not expecting as much snow as we had in January, nevertheless there will be some. 1 to 2cm away from the coast this morning with more on higher ground; 5 to 10cm, 2 to 4 inches on some hills and mountains, especially the Cambrian and Snowdonia mountains with drifting and blizzards.

Icy patches are also likely and the Met Office has issued a warning.

This morning some parts of Wales woke up to a light covering of snow and it will remain windy. During the day there will be further wintry showers. Some of them heavy with hail, sleet and snow and perhaps thunder.

However, during the afternoon and evening, the showers will turn more to rain as slightly less cold air spreads across the country. Top temperatures 4 to 7 Celsius but it will feel much colder, more like freezing or below, in the strong to gale force west to north-westerly wind. Gusts 45 to 65mph are likely in exposed places.

Later in the week, the wind will ease but it will stay on the cold side with some sunshine, overnight frost and a few wintry showers.
