Icy winds blowing in from Russia

Tagged with:

Much of Wales has had a wintry mixture of rain, sleet and snow over the last 24 hours, with most of the snow falling on higher ground.

I'm not expecting much (if any) more snow over the next few days, but the thermals will definitely come in handy as this week it's going to be one of the coldest so far this winter - with easterly winds blowing in from Russia.

This photo was taken by Sian Cleddau in Maenchlochog near the Preseli hills in Pembrokeshire.

It might also be an idea to check your car anti-freeze too as there will be some low temperatures overnight.

There was just about enough snow in Gilfach Goch for Caitlin and Geraint Powell to build a snowman.

I'm not sure it will make it into our snow art picture gallery though!

Temperatures tonight will be around freezing or below and the Met Office has issued a yellow warning of icy patches.

Yellow means be aware, especially in the south and west where we've had most of the rain and snow today.

Over the next few days our weather will be dominated by high pressure over Finland and that means cold easterly winds blowing across northern Europe and into the UK.

The rest of the week will bring us plenty of dry weather with variable cloud, sunny spells and hard frosts so you may want to protect any vulnerable outdoor plants.

Over the weekend, it will hopefully turn milder with a spell of rain preceded by snow but the cold air could return again next week.

Don't forget you can keep up to date to with the latest traffic and travel news on Radio Wales, Radio Cymru and online at www.bbc.co.uk/wales.

Wrap-up warmly, keep feeding the birds and keep an eye on elderly neighbours and relatives during this cold snap.
