A yellow weather warning for ice has been issued for the whole of Wales on Monday.

The Met Office has issued the warning for ice from midnight on Sunday until 11am on Monday morning.

The weather warning starts just as a yellow weather warning for snow ends after a day in which much of Wales has been hit by wintry conditions.

A weather warning for snow is in place until midnight across most of Wales except along coastal areas. Places above 100m could see as much as 10cm of snowfall on Sunday.

The warning says: “Ice patches are expected overnight onwards into Monday morning, especially where snow has fallen on Sunday.”

The Met Office warns that some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces may occur.

Icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths are likely.

The warning covers all of Wales and southern England as well as parts of north-west England.




The weather forecast for Wales on Monday predicts it will be a largely dry and sunny day.

The full forecast from the Met Office says: “A largely dry and sunny day, though the north may see the odd localised shower, and some cloud may develop inland during the afternoon. Maximum temperature 6C.”

The outlook for the rest of the week: “Tuesday starts largely dry, though a band of rain edging in from the southwest. Wednesday and Thursday cloudy with outbreaks of rain, possibly heavy, and strong winds.”

Another Met Office yellow warning is in place until midnight this evening for all parts of Wales except Anglesey.

Up to 3cm of snow is expected to fall in the warning area, with areas above 100m likely to see up to 10cm.

Pictures from across Wales show snowfall, with some delays on the M4 reported and police warning of difficult conditions.

As a result of the weather warning, Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board decided to close all four community vaccination sites following safety concerns for vulnerable people.

The sites in Bridgend, Rhondda, Abercynon and Merthyr will be closed on Sunday and Monday.
