From snow, to sleet, to rain...

Today is changeover day where we finally say goodbye to the cold air that has been locked over Wales for the last few days.

A band of rain is pushing across the country through the day, the leading edge turning to snow, before becoming sleety, before eventually returning to rain.

A yellow warning is in force across NE Wales for snow. Southernmost counties have a yellow warning for rain leading to the possibility of surface water flooding as snow rapidly melts. Temperatures range from 1C in the east away from the coast to 5-6C across the west near the sea.

Tonight the main rain band heads east leaving a few showers around. A cold night with lows of -1C, but many places will remain above freezing.

Saturday starts with a blast of winter sunshine, although it will be a chilly start. As the day progresses temperatures rise to 8C, but more cloud arrives from the west into the afternoon. Rain from that cloud arrives after dark
