The weather is getting noticeably colder across the UK, so much so areas of North Wales could see snow from as early as next week.

Weather forecasters WX Charts have predicted Wales is set to be hit with up to three days of snow, with some areas set to experience snowfalls of around 10cm per hour.

Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire and Conwy are among the areas that will see snow according to WX Charts.

The Met Office long-range forecast also predicts snow and "colder than average" conditions are on the way, with BBC Weather predicting minus temperatures as early as Friday (November 24) in some parts of North Wales including Wrexham.

The Met Office long-range forecast, which covers November 28 to December 7, said conditions are set to be "colder than average" across the UK and people can expect "general snow towards the turn of the month".

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Colder than average conditions are most likely overall, as chances of some wintry showers, or even more general snow towards the turn of the month, are increasing.

"Cloud and rain is likely to be clearing southeastern England early on, followed by a period of widely colder, drier and brighter weather and the return of overnight frosts.

"Scattered showers along with an overnight ice risk may affect some coastal areas of northern and eastern Scotland, and eastern England at times, which could turn increasingly wintry over hills in the north.

"These conditions could then persist, particularly in the north, but there is an increasing chance of areas of cloud, rain and/or snow, perhaps with strong winds too, spreading north across at least southern areas from later next week."
