Page loading ...

Bitterly cold with strong easterly winds; prolonged snowfall overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Strong easterly winds will continue to bring bitterly cold conditions this evening and overnight. Snow showers will continue, with growing accumulations particularly over the hills. An area of more prolonged snowfall will affect South Wales in the early hours. Minimum Temperature -4C.


Snow will continue to fall across Wales through the morning, bringing further accumulations, especially over higher ground in the south. Snow will ease during the day, feeling bitterly cold. Maximum Temperature 2C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

It will be an icy start on Monday. Sunnier, drier and less cold by mid-week with lighter winds. Further overnight frosts.

Day 6 to 15

After a clear frosty start across southern areas on Thursday, a band of cloud and rain will spread across all parts, followed by blustery showers, these heaviest in the northwest. Showers will die out on Friday as thicker cloud and rain spreads in from the west, becoming windy. While daytime temperatures will recover to around normal, for a time we may still see overnight frosts. By the weekend it will turn unsettled and rather cold across most parts with some prolonged outbreaks of rain, particularly in western areas. Low pressure is expected to be close to the UK by the start of Easter week, with a mixture of showers, more prolonged spells of rain and some snow likely in the north.

Day 16 to 30

There is significant uncertainty in the forecast throughout this period, but a blocked or slowly changing weather pattern is probable. There will most likely be a balance between Atlantic frontal systems affecting the south and west at times with colder air associated with high pressure out to the northeast. Mixed conditions are likely with wetter than average weather expected across the south, while staying drier and perhaps colder to the north. Further snow is possible, especially in the north. Windy conditions likely at times. Temperatures will likely be below average with further night frosts, and any milder interludes will probably be only brief.
