We’ve seen a big improvement in the weather today with some sunshine but it’s all change again tomorrow with strong winds and gales on the way.

A cold front will also bring a short spell of rain in the afternoon followed by clearer, colder air and a few showers.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of gales for northern counties, north Powys and Ceredigion where 60 to 70mph gusts are likely with a risk of some travel disruption

Flooding is also possible on the north Wales coast with large waves due to the combination of a storm surge, high tides and strong onshore winds.

The reason for the disturbed weather is a deep area of low pressure which will move into Scandinavia tomorrow with a cold front moving south-wards across Britain.

Met Office weather chart for Thursday, 5 December 2013.

Thursday evening will be clearer and colder with a few showers, which will be wintry on higher ground.

The wind will ease and a cold night will follow with a slight frost in places.

Friday will be a calmer, quieter day with plenty of cloud and a few showers although some places will stay dry with a little sunshine.

The weekend will turn less cold with south-westerly winds bringing plenty of cloud. A few spots of light rain and drizzle are likely but there should be some dry weather as well.

In the meantime, watch out for strong winds and gales on Thursday and a risk of flooding on the north Wales coast.
