Severe weather warnings: More snow to come
Tuesday 5 January 2010, 12:46
There's a very wintry look to the weather across Wales today with Met Office severe warnings in force for heavy snow and ice and there's more heavy snow to come.
We've probably had the worst of the snow for South Wales for time being and most of it will fall in the North and West this afternoon.
The current spell of cold weather started in mid December and has been the
most prolonged spell of freezing conditions across the UK since
Looking ahead to tonight - an area of low pressure will form over Southern England which will generate more heavy snow.
Central and Southern England look likely to be worst hit but South East Wales could also be affected by heavy snow.
The areas most likely to be affected are:
Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Newport, Rhondda Cynon Taff and Torfaen
Forecasts amount to 5 to 10cm quite widely and as much as 10 to 15cm in places (4 to 6 inches), especially in Newport and Monmouthshire.
This could cause widespread disruption to transport and could affect power supplies.
If you have to travel, take extra care and allow more time for your journey.
Take some warm clothes in your car, a hot drink and just in case - a shovel!Derek Latest weather warningsView our snow gallery so far
