More snow on the way

It was a quiet weekend - dry and not too cold so ideal for a walk or Christmas shopping but it will be a very different story next weekend as an Arctic blast looks set to bring more snow, ice and freezing temperatures.

Over the next few days, a ridge of high pressure will keep things largely dry and settled. There'll be some sunshine and a few fog patches with just a slight frost overnight - nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year but don't be fooled...

A cold front over the Arctic will sweep south across Britain during Thursday and that will open the gates to some very cold air, direct from the North Pole.

Most of Wales will be in the firing line for snow on Thursday and Friday and the Met Office has issued an early warning.

Very low night time temperatures are also expected with further snowfall over the weekend.

At the moment, it looks like it may turn less cold next week, so don't bank on it being a white Christmas just yet, but there could well be snow still visible on 25 December.

    Where does Derek get his information from? Not the BBC web site that is showing nothing but light rain on Thursday, whilst the Met Office site has a severe weather warning.

    Comment number 2.

    We are planning on spending Christmas near Trefenter in Ceredigion in a house that Google Earth states is 266 meteres above sea level. We are hanging on Derek's every word about this weather as that road is only gritted when the local council are able to, therefore could we ask what confidence level this arctic weather forecast has? Could he also give us an indication of the cloud cover conditions on the morning of December 21st for the total lunar eclipse that is due that morning from 0530 GMT onwards?
