County council advises on yellow snow warning

Denbighshire County Council has passed on a yellow weather warning for snow affecting the area. It says:

Between 03:00 (UTC) on Thu 8 Feb 2024 and 03:00 (UTC) on Fri 9 Feb 2024. 

A period of snowfall could bring some disruption on Thursday and Thursday night.

A band of rain, sleet, and increasingly snow, will push north on Thursday bringing up to 2cm snow at lower-levels, 2-5cm on ground above 200m, and perhaps as much as 10-20cm above 400m. 

The snow will ease later in the day, and may turn back to rain or drizzle, especially in the south and east of the area. 

There is some uncertainty with respect to the rain/snow boundary, and the northern limit of the snow, and so details may change in the coming days as confidence increases in these aspects.

What should I do? Snowy, wintry weather can cause delays and make driving conditions dangerous, so to keep yourself and others safe: plan your route, checking for delays and road closures, amending your travel plans if necessary; if driving, leave more time to prepare and check your car before setting off; make sure you have essentials packed in your car in the event of any delays (warm clothing, food, water, a blanket, a torch, ice scraper/de-icer, a warning triangle, high visibility vest and an in-car phone charger). 

People cope better when they have prepared in advance for the risk of power cuts or being cut off from services and amenities due to the snow. It’s easy to do; consider gathering torches and batteries, a mobile phone power pack and other essential items. 

Be prepared for weather warnings to change quickly: when a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area.

DCC gritting teams will be working continuously through this period to keep the primary network open and the teams will be salting all priority gritting routes.

Further updates will be provided if deemed necessary.
