A MET Office yellow warning for snowfall has been issued for parts of North Wales.

This warning is in place from 3am on Thursday (February 8) until the same time on February 9.

The Met Office says that a period of snowfall could bring some disruption throughout Thursday.

Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd are among the regions likely to be affected.

The Met Office’s warning added: “A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday, bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m.

“The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area.

“There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects.

“People cope better when they have prepared in advance for the risk of power cuts or being cut off from services and amenities due to the snow.

“It’s easy to do; consider gathering torches and batteries, a mobile phone power pack and other essential items.

“Be prepared for weather warnings to change quickly: when a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area.”

What to expect:

  • There is a small chance of travel delays on roads, with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.
  • There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off.
  • There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.
