Two separate weather warnings covering three days have been issued by the Met Office – with more snow, ice and cold temperatures set to hit the area.

The yellow weather warnings, which cover the Wrexham area, are in place from early Thursday 1st March through until late on Saturday 3rd March.

The first warning is in place from 9am on Thursday and is due to last until 11:55pm that evening – with the Met Office forecasting that there is “potential for a spell of snow, which could become heavy in places, accompanied by strong winds, to move slowly north from Thursday morning onwards.”

Gusts from 9am on Thursday morning could reach 32mph, before continuing to increase throughout the day.

Wrexham is also just on the cusp of an amber weather warning on Thursday, however there is no indication what (if any) impact that will have on the area.

A second weather warning for snow and strong winds, lasting from Friday morning through until Saturday evening, is also in place.

The Met Office say: There is potential for a spell of heavy snow, accompanied by strong winds at first, to affect much of Northern Ireland, Wales together with central and southern England during Friday, and perhaps further bands of snow following in behind on Saturday.

“Delays and cancellations to public transport are possible, as are delays to travel on roads; some stranding of vehicles and passengers could also occur.

“Some rural communities could become cut off. Interruptions to power supplies and mobile phone coverage are also possible.”

Temperatures for the rest of the week are set to remain very low – staying around the zero degrees / minus one mark. However in the evenings and early in the morning, this could feel more like minus nine!
