Advance Weather Warning: SNOW on its way to Wales

The weather charts are showing that we’ve got some snow on its way to Wales. The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for parts of Wales as cold northerly winds will bring occasional snow showers through Thursday and into Friday.

Snow showers are expected to develop from Wednesday evening and well into Thursday.

The Met Office have said:

“Cold air originating over Arctic Canada will affect the area from Wednesday evening through Thursday, bringing snow showers and strong winds. Wind gusts up to 55 mph are expected in exposed coastal areas and on hills in association with snow showers, leading to temporary blizzard conditions. As well as reduced visibility, 2-5 cm of snow could accumulate anywhere within the warning area, with 10-20 cm possible above 300 m. Lightning may accompany the heaviest showers, with potential disruption to power supplies as a consequence.”

This is all due to a cold airstream that will push into Wales by Thursday afternoon, bringing occasional snow showers. 2-5 cm of snow is possible, with 10 cm possible above about 300 metres.

Down on the farm, we’ll preparing for the snow by stocking up on Malted Milks and teabags. The last thing we’d want is to get snowed in and find our that we’re out of tea and biscuits.
