Where's the best place to find out about school closures?

Local radio station www.marchersound.co.uk is used by schools in NE Wales to inform parents when schools are closed due to the snow, along with BBC Radio Wales BBC Radio Cymru, and text updates via the BBC News Wales website.

Council websites are also a good source of information in the event of local distruptions.

I've noticed this morning it has been difficult to get on some of these sites due to the volume of users also trying to get up to date information.

So it still pays to listen to your radio.

BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru are also keeping their listeners updated about schools closures as well as the BBC News Wales website.

I'm keeping across things from home today - thanks to the wonders of technology - and I'll keep you posted here and via twitter where you can also let me know what you're up to if you've got a snow day!
