Temperatures set to drop as Met Office issue weather warning for icy conditions for people living in or visiting the wrexham area

Further bad weather conditions are on the way for Wrexham with a yellow weather warning in place for ice.

In the last 24 hours the county has been hit by heavy rainfall and flooding, which caused some residents in the Bangor-on-Dee and New Broughton areas to be evacuated from their homes overnight.

However the Met Office say that there is “colder weather in store for many as Storm Christoph pulls away from the UK and rainfall starts to ease.”

The yellow warning for ice in place from this afternoon until 10am on Thursday morning.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Paul Gundersen, said: “Colder air is now established across the UK as Storm Christoph moves away into the North Sea, and gale force winds will impact the northeast of the country.

“There are three National Severe weather warnings in place, two in north and east Scotland, one for rain and one for snow valid until noon on Friday, and an ice warning cover western Scotland, north west England, Northern Ireland and much of Wales, valid until 10 am Friday.”
