The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for Flintshire and surround area due to icy conditions.

Wintry showers are expected to continue today and overnight, these will lead to the possibility of ice forming as temperatures fall this evening and overnight.

Untreated roads and surfaces will be affected the most, roads where grit has washed off due to frequent showers could also be icy.

There could also be between 1-3 cm of snow hills above around 200 metres and more than 5 cm above 400 metres.

Some of the heaviest showers could produce slushy conditions even at low levels leading to tricky driving conditions.

Chief Forecaster’s assessment.

Cold northwesterly airstream will continue to bring heavy showers or rain, sleet, snow and hail through this period. Clear spells in between will allow temperatures to fall close to or below freezing – hence the likelihood of some ice.
