A band of rain, sleet and snow will move eastwards across Wales during Friday morning.
Between 08:00 Fri 18 Jan and 13:00 Fri 18 Jan
There remains some uncertainty in the timing and the extent of any snow, but there is likely to be a few hours where 2-4 cm of snow could accumulate on higher level routes, this chiefly above 250 metres.
However, reports are coming in that North Wales in particular, has already received a dusting a snow today (Thursday).
Ian Cooper shares photographs of the lovely Denbigh Moors covered in snow earlier today:

Don’t forget to take care on those hills!
There's snow on them there hills!! If you're going on David Morgan's 2000 ft mountain walk on Sunday be aware that there is snow on the ground.
Wrap up warm & ensure you've got your winter kit in your rucksacks please.

Note the snow line on #Snowdon so it you’re coming up to play then definitely consider local ground reports, weather and kitting up with spiky bits and warm kit… #GetOutside #RT #Wales #Snowdonia pic.twitter.com/AtGvbPcJID
