The Met Office has issued a yellow weather alert over possible snow showers and ice in Flintshire on Sunday.

The snow is forecast for many parts of the UK between 6am and 6pm on Sunday though forecasters say it will mainly affect higher ground if it does hit North East Wales.

 A Met Office update says;

‘The snow is more likely to affect higher routes with lower levels only affected more locally.

In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night.

Some roads and railways likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.’

Chief Forecaster’s assessment.

“Amounts of fresh snow will vary considerably across the warning area. Most of the snow is expected on higher ground with 3-6 cm likely above around 200 m and perhaps 10-15 cm locally on ground above 300 m over Scotland.

At lower levels 1-3 cm is possible locally, but with many spots escaping altogether. There is significant uncertainty regarding the southern limit of any snow accumulations.”
