The Met Office Wales Snow Warning for the second consecutive weekend

Last Sunday, people in Wales woke up to a blanket of snow and it may be the same as this weekend as the Bureau of Meteorology issued another warning.

Meteorologists have placed a yellow warning over much of Wales on Saturday.

The warning, which applies from 3 AM to 6 PM, states: “The rain area flowing from the southwest during the early morning will turn into snow in some places as it experiences cooler air.

“There is still a great deal of uncertainty about how far the rain and snow will reach the north, before the division stops and begins to move south again as it retreats. 3-7 cm of snow is possible to low levels with a probability of 10-15 cm above ground. High (above 200-300 m), mainly in Wales and the West Midlands.

“There is a very small chance of possibly 20 cm over the higher parts of Shropshire and Snowdonia.”

Area Covered by Warning:


This comes after snow covered large areas of Wales last weekend. The best pictures are here.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the UK has experienced the most snowfall since late January 2019, when 20 weather stations in England recorded accumulations of 5 cm or more for three consecutive days.

The weather in Wales this week has been relatively mild compared to other parts of the country.

On Thursday, the Bureau of Meteorology said: “Heavy rains and snow in some northern parts of the UK on Thursday morning may disrupt transportation in some places, so remember to stay aware of the weather.
