IT IS a cold start to the morning as forecasters warn of snow and icy conditions across Wales.

A yellow weather warning for snow and ice remains in place until 10am on Tuesday which covers Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd and Anglesey.

The Met Office said wintry showers could lead to travel disruption and some places could see up to 4cm of snow.

Some areas can also expect to see hailstones as the unsettled weather continues.

Wrexham and Denbighshire will see temperatures drop to 0C on Tuesday morning with Flintshire plummeting further to -1C - a far cry from the Spring heatwave of last week.

For the rest of the week, temperatures will remain on the lower end, compared to this time last year - shortly after the UK went into its first national lockdown.

Chief Meteorologist, Dan Suri, said: “The Met Office has been signalling a dramatic change in weather type for several days, with very cold air moving from the Arctic through Sunday night, bringing snow showers and freezing overnight temperatures and all accompanied by strong northerly winds accentuating the cold.

"Although snow showers will predominantly affect the north and north west, they could occur almost anywhere in the UK early this week, at least temporarily.

"Some areas will remain drier and see few, if any, showers, for example: the southeastern quarter of England and the Central Belt of Scotland.

"Even in southern parts of the UK daytime maximum temperatures will struggle to rise above 9.0 °C, and although this region is likely to remain drier, the occasional wintry shower cannot be ruled out."

Temperatures are expected to remain below average for the coming week.

Here's what the Met Office has predicted for the week:


The wintry showers continue in the west and north of the country, turning widespread from midday, bringing snow showers to many across the country. Patchy cloud allows for some sunny spells, though still feeling bitterly cold in the wind. Maximum temperature 7 °C.


Wintry showers continue this evening, clearing into the night. Remaining largely dry, with the odd shower in the west, but cold throughout. Clear skies in the southeast, with widespread frosts. Minimum temperature -1 °C.


A cloudy start, and even foggy for some, before further wintry showers through the morning and afternoon. Driest in the east of the country. Largely dry overnight, remaining cold. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Largely dry Thursday, with winds strengthening, but feeling milder. Rain followed by widespread wintry outbreaks on Friday, with cold air returning. Feeling cold Saturday, with frequent wintry showers throughout.
