Snow has stuck on the ground in parts of Denbighshire today (Monday) including Llandegla, Horseshoe Pass in Llangollen, Llanferres and Llanarmon Yn Ial. 

The Met Office gave a yellow warning for Tuesday and Wednesday meaning members of the public should be aware as severe weather is possible over the next few days and could affect you.

Yellow means that you should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of your day to day activities.

The Met Office is monitoring the developing weather situation and Yellow means keep an eye on the latest forecast and be aware that the weather may change or worsen, leading to disruption of your plans in the next few days.

The Met Office said: “Accumulations of two to five cm are likely on ground above about 150-200m with perhaps 10cm or more above 300m especially in the west of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England.

“On low ground, lying snow will tend to melt between showers by day but one – three cm may settle on Tuesday evening and night.

“Icy stretches will also reform in the evening, these lasting well into Wednesday morning. The public should be aware of the risk of some travel disruption and difficult driving conditions.”

A Denbighshire County Council spokesman said: "Teams of council staff have been out and about dealing with the wintry conditions and although there has been some accumulations of snow in parts of the county, the snow has been localised.

"There is the potential for more ice and snow over the coming days and we would urge motorists to take the usual precautions and listen out for any weather warnings.

"The council will continue to monitor weather forecasts over the coming days and will deploy teams of staff to treat the county's roads, as and when it is necessary to do so."
