Another yellow weather alert will come into force on Wednesday covering south Wales and the Met Office are warning a period of snow is likely to cause some travel disruption.

On Thursday a yellow weather warning for heavy snow in north Wales and parts of mid Wales will be in place from 3am until 6pm on Friday as mild air from the south-west meets cold air.

The forecaster has warned the snowfall has the potential to cause significant disruption on Thursday and Friday and there is a slight chance roads may become blocked by deep snow.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said temperatures would be “much, much colder than we would expect at this time of year”.

He said: “The pattern will set in for some time. We have got this feed of cold air coming in from a much higher latitude.

“We expect these conditions to remain in place until at least next weekend and possibly longer because sometimes these conditions can be quite stubborn and not easily subject to change.”

The Met Office warned travel disruption is likely and journey times by car, train and bus may take longer than usual.

There are so many conflicting weather reports for Wales one doesn’t know which one to believe. The yellow weather warning that was issued yesterday for all of South Wales has not developed in our area.

Hurry! Close the schools. Stop the trains. Stop work. Stay at home. Empty shops of bread and milk. Shut down the country. Fully charge phones. Why? So everyone can take photos of the snow to post on social media as if competing in a national competition. The winner is….the photo with the most likes! Some people have already started the rain dance.
