MORE weather warnings have been put in place for North Wales over the weekend, the Met Office confirmed.

The yellow alerts for snow and ice will first come into force on Friday afternoon at 4pm and covers most of the western part of the UK.

This will last until 10.30am tomorrow morning, Saturday, but another warning swiftly comes into effects that afternoon at 4pm once again for snow and ice.

The second warning will last until 10.30am across the same area of the UK but does overlap with a third warning for Wales on Sunday.

The last day of the weekend will see a more localised warning of snow and ice that covers all parts of Wales and the south of England. This starts in the early hours of the morning at 3am and will be in force until 6pm.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Showers will continue at times across many areas, these largely of rain and sleet at low levels across southern England and southern Wales and near coasts but will be of sleet and snow elsewhere.

"These will bring a cover of snow in places. 1-3 cm could accumulate at low levels, mostly across Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England but as much as 5-10 cm of additional snow may accumulate at higher levels of these areas.

"Clear skies between showers will also bring the threat of ice."

What to expect:

  • Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries.
  • Some roads and railways likely to be affected by snowfall, with longer journey times by car as well as bus and train services
