Snow showers are expected to affect Flintshire and pretty much the rest of Wales and North West of England from the early hours of Friday morning through to 6pm on Saturday.

The Met Office is predicting that up to 5cm of snowfall is expected for some parts of the county, with up to 20cm also possible for many on high ground.

The Met Office said icy surfaces are also likely to be an additional hazard, especially overnight.

Disruption to travel is likely, with rail and ferry cancellations possible. Temperatures will fall to between minus 2 and plus 2 degrees, with frost and icy patches. "Snow showers will turn increasingly frequent and heavy across northern Scotland during the evening".

"On Friday and Saturday, snow showers could lead to accumulations which vary markedly across the warning area".
