ALTHOUGH it is starting to feel more spring-like, wintry weather is set to return in the coming weeks with snow forecast for Denbighshire.

Weather forecaster, WX Charts, is predicting snowfall in the region, with the heaviest snow at the beginning of March.

It comes after the Met Office warned a major Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) is likely to happen in the next couple of weeks.


WX Charts, which is part of MetDesk, is forecasting that a blanket of snow of up to 10cm could fall per hour during Saturday, 11 March.

Lower levels of snow are due from Sunday, 5 March, with the heaviest snowfall to be seen in Flintshire, Conwy and Denbighshire thereafter.

The Met Office has stressed that the occurrence of an SSW does not always equate to a Beast from the East type scenario.

In 2019, a major SSW did occur but with little impact on the weather.
