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.
