The Met Office has issued its first snow and ice warning of the season for Wrexham.

A yellow weather warning is in place from 9am tomorrow morning and through to 9am Sunday on.

Periods of freezing rain and the possibility of snow could bring problems to transport routes and networks.

It’s going to be a chilly weekend ahead with highs of just 2C on Saturday and 6C on Sunday – so wrap up warm and take care when heading out and about.

The Met Office state: “Freezing rain is expected to develop during Saturday, lasting into the early hours of Sunday. This may result in the formation of ice on roads, pavements, trees and other structures.

“Freezing rain is rare in the United Kingdom, but when it does occur impacts can be severe. This is due to the fact that it can form very quickly, it can be difficult to see, and is incredibly slippery.

“Freezing rain is likely to change to snow before it dies out across parts of Scotland, bringing some accumulations of 2-5 cm.

“The freezing rain and snow will be accompanied by strong southeasterly winds which will pose an additional hazard to travel, in particular over high ground.”
