Icy conditions are expected to hit North Wales over the next few days with snow due to fall on higher ground. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning covering the majority of the region effective from 4pm today (Thursday, 8 December) until midday on Saturday. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

The national weather service said some disruption is likely due to icy road surfaces as temperatures dip below 0°C, with the potential for injuries from slips and falls and pavements as well. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Forecasters said: “Frequent wintry showers are likely to fall onto frozen surfaces in places, leading to the formation of icy patches. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

“These showers are expected to fall as snow on high ground, with the potential for several centimetres to accumulate, especially over the high ground of north Wales.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
