Met Workplace snow climate warning for Wales

The snow in the Midlands and Wales is forecast to thin into lighter showers

Cold temperatures are likely to remain into next week, with forecasters warning that Sunday could see further heavy snow showers.

James Knight, RAC director of roadside operations, said: "The end of this week and into the weekend will see an arctic blast sweep across the country, with snow for many of us, but our roadside patrols are well prepared and will be working around the clock to assist our members who find themselves in hard situations". "Rural communities with limited access routes could become cut off".

This follows risky and violent winds caused by Storm Caroline, which has now started to move away from Britain.

Some parts of the United Kingdom have already woken up to a blanket of snow today.

"We are also expecting snow to affect many of Wales and central England on Sunday, so with National Severe Weather Warnings in force drivers in particular will need to regularly check the forecast so they can be prepared".

"There will also be frequent showers across the north and west of the United Kingdom and Ireland through the day, which will turn increasingly to sleet and snow, mainly over high ground".

However, the snowy Sunday for many means getting the sleighs out and building snowmen for a fun-filled snow day.

Gales should significantly lessen as the storm heads further south, but Liverpool could still face winds of up to 46mph and Londoners can look forward to 35mph gusts, the Met Office has said.

Social media users as far south as Birmingham posted videos of blizzards, with the potential for a smattering across the far South West, the whole of Wales and parts of Oxfordshire by dusk on Saturday.

Forecasters say 10-20 cm is possible for some locations and the worst areas affected mainly in northern Scotland. "Possible travel delays on roads".

'At the moment we have a yellow weather warning in place, but it could be upgraded to amber'.

"Road, rail and air travel delays are likely, as well as stranding of vehicles and public transport cancellations".

Snowfall is forecast to continue in parts of northwest England, the Midlands and Wales, with as much as 20cm (8in) predicted in some areas as Storm Caroline drags cold air across the country from Scandinavia.
