Last Sunday, people in Wales woke up to a blanket of snow and it could be the same this weekend as the Met Office has issued another warning.
Forecasters have placed a yellow warning over a large part of Wales on Saturday.
The warning, which is in place from 3am to 6pm, states: “An area of rain pushing in from the southwest through the early morning will readily turn to snow in places as it encounters colder air.
“There remains a good deal of uncertainty in how far north the rain and snow will get, before the band stalls and starts to move south again as it eases. 3-7 cm of snow is possible to low levels with the potential for 10-15 cm over high ground (above 200-300 m), mainly in Wales and the West Midlands.
“There is a very low chance of perhaps as much 20 cm over highest parts of the Shropshire and Snowdonia.”
The area covered by the warning:
It comes after large swathes of Wales were left blanketed in snow last weekend. The best pictures are here.
The Met Office said the UK had experienced its snowiest spell since late January 2019, when 20 weather stations in England recorded accumulations of 5cm or more for three days consecutively.
Weather in Wales this week has been relatively mild compared to other parts of the country .
On Thursday, the Met Office said: “Heavy rain and snow across some northern parts of the UK on Thursday morning may lead to transport disruption in places, so remember to stay weather aware.
” Further south, the skies will gradually brighten and in any sunny spells it will feel very mild.”
