Carmarthenshire County Council receives daily updates from the Met Office on weather and conditions.
Road surface temperatures will again fall well below zero tonight with hoar frost and icy patches expected.
The forecast also shows a band of snow arriving from the north-east from around 2 to 3am with outbreaks of snow continuing overnight and into tomorrow morning, slowly dying out late in the day. These will be light in the west and quite showery but more persistent in the east.
Remaining extremely cold with a developing wind-chill as the north-easterly wind strengthens through the next few days. Road surface temperatures are well below zero each night with ice.
Motorists are being reminded to watch their speed and drive carefully avoiding any sudden manoeuvres and braking lightly. They should make sure all the windows are clear of snow, properly de-iced and de-misted before setting out. If the weather conditions are very poor do not travel unless you really have to.
The council’s gritting teams have been working day and night to keep the county’s road network as safe as possible.
Executive board member for technical services Councillor Philip Hughes said: “Our gritting teams are working extremely hard at the moment. We do all we can to keep the roads safe during the winter, however, we cannot stress enough that motorists should be mindful of the road conditions and drive accordingly.”
