THE Met Office is predicting that snow is set to hit Wrexham and Flintshire later this week. 

The weather experts have issued a yellow weather warning for snow, which is in place from 3am on Thursday (February 8) until 3am on Friday (February 9). 

Several snow and ice warnings were put in place across the counties last month, and another yellow warning has returned early in February. 

All of Wrexham and Flintshire are covered by the warning, as is the rest of north Wales and the North West.

The Met Office have warned people what to expect: 

  • There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected
  • There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off
  • There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel

The Met Office are predicting as much as 20cm of snow to fall across high level areas, with up to 5cm at lower levels. 


A Met Office spokesperson said: "A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m.

"The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area.

"There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects."
