The Met Office has issued an amber warning for snow and ice across north Wales effective from 8am to 3pm tomorrow, Thursday, February 7.

A yellow alert for snow in Flintshire is also in place from 6am to 6pm on Thursday.

The forecast predicts heavy snowfall and icy conditions, likely to cause widespread disruptions throughout Thursday which could impact parts of Flintshire.

The expected weather conditions include persistent and, at times, heavy snowfall starting Thursday morning and slowly easing later in the day.

As milder air arrives from the south, there’s a potential for snow to turn into freezing rain, especially on higher routes above 200 meters.

Accumulations of 10-15 cm of snow are anticipated across the warning area, with some locations, particularly those at higher elevations, possibly receiving 20-25 cm. Additionally, strong and gusty easterly winds may cause snow to drift in places.

The Met Office has said the impact of this severe weather is substantial, with the likelihood of some rural communities becoming temporarily isolated. The warning covers Flintshire, Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Powys, Wrexham, and Shropshire, to stay informed and prepared.
