Temperatures are set to drop this week with an Arctic air set to bring snow to many parts of the UK.

The Met Office have issued their first snow warning of the year, with snow showers expected to develop in some parts of north Wales from Wednesday evening and lasting into Thursday.

Wrexham falls into the ‘Be Alert’ weather warning on Friday 13 January – with the Met Office saying that ‘Cold northerly winds will bring occasional snow showers through Thursday and into Friday’.

Motorists are also being warned of potential disruption to transport networks.

Further details about the weather warning are added in the Chief Forecaster’s Statement, which reads: “A cold airstream will be in place by Thursday afternoon, bringing occasional snow showers. 2-5 cm of snow is possible, with 10 cm possible above about 300m.”
