A Met Office weather warning had initially warned of snow in parts of Flintshire but this changesd to a yellow warning for heavy rain up to 4pm today.
Latest weather radar image (below) shows a large area of red over Deeside – this represents snow but now more is expected to fall.
The Met Office weather warning says:
“Rain and transient hill snow will spread northwards later on Sunday. Rain will become heavy and persistent for a time before easing from the south during Monday morning. 15-25 mm of rain is likely widely, with 30-50 mm possible locally in parts of South Wales.
Some temporary snow is likely over the higher ground early on Monday morning, mainly in Wales and above 400 m, where 2-5 cm could accumulate before snow turns back to rain.
A separate warning is in force to cater for higher rainfall amounts and the potential of some medium impacts across southern parts of the Southwest Peninsula.”Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
