Snow and icy conditions look set to hit the Wrexham area over the next few days, with a second weather warning now in place for the area.

Over the weekend Wrexham.com reported that a yellow weather warning for snow and ice had been issued by the Met Office and covered between 9pm on Monday 5th February and 3pm on Tuesday 6th February.

A second weather warning for snow and ice has since been issued, with the Met Office forecasting that snow and icy conditions could affect the area between 5:00am on Tuesday 6th and 10:00am Wednesday 7th February.

As you’d expect with the two warnings in place, temperatures are set to drop over the next two days, with lows of -2C forecast overnight.

In the new weather warning, the Met Office state: “Sleet, snow and hail showers, some heavy, will affect western areas through Tuesday, with icy stretches forming overnight.

“This update extends the warning area slightly further east and also points to a reduced likelihood of medium impacts occurring.

“Some transport disruption is possible, with longer journey times and delays to public transport.

“Icy patches are likely to develop on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, leading to an increased risk of injuries and accidents.”
