THIS WILL FOLLOW A COUPLE OF DAYS OF MILD, WET AND, AT TIMES VERY
WINDY, WEATHER DURING WHICH GUSTS TO 70MPH OR MORE HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO CAUSE DISRUPTION IN SOME NORTHERN AREAS.

SNOW SHOWERS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP IN THE NORTHWEST ON CHRISTMAS
EVE AND THESE WILL SPREAD TO MANY OTHER NORTHERN AND WESTERN AREAS
ON CHRISTMAS DAY, BECOMING HEAVIER AND PERHAPS MORE PROLONGED AS
THEY DO SO. THERE IS AN INCREASING RISK OF SOME SNOW SHOWERS IN THE

ABOVE RELATE TO THE POTENTIAL DISRUPTION TO TRAVEL WITH THE RISK OF
SEVERAL CENTIMETRES OF SNOW ACCUMULATING IN PLACES, ESPECIALLY OVER

CONFIDENCE IN A COLD SPELL FOR CHRISTMAS IS MODERATE TO HIGH BUT
THERE ARE STILL DOUBTS IN THE DETAIL, WHILST MARKED LOCALISED
VARIATIONS IN SNOWFALL ARE LIKELY, WITH SOME AREAS ESCAPING.

FOR ENQUIRIES REGARDING THIS WARNING - PLEASE CONTACT YOUR REGIONAL
MET OFFICE.
TRANSMITTED BY THE MET OFFICE AT 06:34 ON WEDNESDAY 22 DECEMBER 2004
THIS WARNING WILL THEREFORE BE UPDATED AROUND 0900 TOMORROW,

I'm still hoping to get down Tywyn on Boxing Day for a bit of whiting bashing, unless the roads are dire!

Cheers - John
