Warning to drivers over icy roads

The BBC is reporting this afternoon (Tuesday) that drivers are being warned that icy roads could lead to possible disruption to travel in parts of north and mid Wales on Wednesday morning.

The story says that the Met Office said there was also a chance of snow overnight, particularly on high ground, as temperatures plunge.

It adds: "The yellow "be aware" warning is in place from 16:00 GMT on Tuesday to 12:00 GMT on Wednesday.

North Wales was hit by severe weather last week as heavy rain led to flooding after rivers burst their banks.

The Met Office said falling temperatures and wintry showers could cause problems in north and mid Wales on Wednesday morning.

"The public should be aware of the potential for increased iciness, especially early on Wednesday, and possible disruption to travel," it said.

BBC Wales weather presenter Sue Charles said Tuesday could see a mix of sleet and snow in Snowdonia, heavy at times, and wintry weather elsewhere.

"This evening showers continue as a weak cold front moves southwards but they'll become mainly confined to western coasts with maybe the odd wintry flurry inland," she said.

"But also the Met Office is warning of an ice risk across north and mid Wales as temperatures fall near freezing following those showers."
