It’s Snow Joke For Football

Ton Pentre are due to play Monmouth Town at Ynys Park on Saturday (19th January) in a MacWhirter Welsh League Division One match, however, the game is in doubt after the Met Office issued an Amber warning of severe weather for Wales on Wednesday (16th January).

Could we see similar scenes to this come Saturday?

Ton Pentre are due to play Monmouth Town at Ynys Park on Saturday (19th January) in a MacWhirter Welsh League Division One match, however, the game is in doubt after the Met Office, on Wednesday (16th January), issued an early Amber warning of severe weather for Wales.

The Met Office has issued an Amber warning of severe weather for Wales.

The Met Office has issued an Amber warning of severe weather for Wales.

Weather forecasts are predicting that regions such as the Rhondda could be hit with a large amount of snow on Friday (20th January). The Met Office warning states:

“As the weather breaks down, an area of snow looks increasingly likely to spread from the southwest.

“Winds will strengthen and blizzard conditions are likely, especially over high ground.

“Accumulations of more than 10-15 cm of snow could well occur quite widely, with the risk of 25 cm or more over high ground.

“Clearly there is the potential for some severe disruption, and the public are advised to watch for updates to this warning and to be prepared to alter travel plans.”

This weather looks likely to bring more chaos to Welsh football fixtures, which suffered heavily during the large amount of rain that the country experienced during December.
