A weather warning has been issued for the Wrexham area, with some icy conditions forecast overnight and first thing Thursday morning.

After a slightly mild (ish) weekend, the wintery conditions are set to return this week with temperatures dropping back below the 6C mark.

A yellow weather warning for ice has been issued by the Met Office – which is in place throughout this evening until 10am on Thursday.

Wrexham, along with large parts of north east Wales is covered in the weather warning, with the Met Office advising motorists that some roads may be affected overnight.

Details released by the Met Office state: “Following a spell of rain, sleet and snow, temperatures will fall quickly allowing ice to form on untreated surfaces.

“Further showers of rain, sleet and snow will follow in the west on Thursday morning, potentially diluting overnight treatments.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are possible.”

Gritters will also be out across Wrexham tonight, with temperatures dropping to just 3C.
