Latest county council weather update

In its latest weather update, issued earlier this afternoon (Wednesday) the county council says:

"Snow showers are set to continue, these falling as a mix of rain and hail near coasts, and sleet and snow inland at times, mainly overnight. Ice will continue to be an issue following any showers.

"This will lead to some temporary snow accumulations at lower levels, whilst higher ground across the county could see further accumulations of between 2-5 cm of snow, although ice will be the main hazard. 

"A Met Office yellow weather warning has subsequently been re-issued and the warning period extended, which is now effective from Wednesday 18 January 12:00hrs through until Thursday 19 January 12:00hrs.

"DCC gritting teams will continue to focus on maintaining the primary road network and resources will continue to be deployed to salt all priority gritting routes throughout this period. Agricultural snow plough contractors have been deployed across the county to clear the worst affected rural routes.

"Residents and road users are advised to only undertake essential travel and allow extra time for any journeys that are necessary and to take extra care due to the slushy and icy conditions.

"Further updates will be provided. In the event of any emergency situation requiring an immediate response, contact should be made directly with Denbighshire Customer Services or via the Galw Gofal out of hours contact centre on 0300 123 3068."
