A BITTERLY cold winter and prolonged snowfall may hit Wales for the third year in a row, forecasters warned yesterday.

Welsh forecasters are suggesting long-term heavy snowfall could wreak havoc again across the country, especially in January and February.

The past two winters have been especially cold in the UK, as high pressure systems settled over northern Europe, preventing warmer air currents crossing in from the Atlantic.

December last year was the coldest in the UK for about 100 years – and Cardiff saw its heaviest snowfall for 30 years.

The Met Office has forecast a colder-than-average start to the autumn, while Welsh forecasters Positive Weather Solutions are already predicting a white winter and freezing temperatures in January and February.

The Met Office is predicting a return to dark cloud, wind and rain this weekend, with minimum temperatures hitting single figures overnight.
