BREAKING: South Wales snow warning upgraded to amber
The Met Office has upgraded the weather warning for snow in South Wales to amber.
The warning, which urges the public to "be prepared", has been issued from 3pm today until midday tomorrow.
Some 10 cm of snow could fall in amber warning areas, the Met Office says. This could be locally heavy and fall in a short period of time, perhaps just a few hours.
A yellow warning of snow in Swansea, Carmarthen, Neath and Cardiff remains in place until 3pm today, and a yellow warning of ice remains in place until midday tomorrow.

Light snow is forecast in Swansea from 6pm tomorrow through to midnight; in Carmarthen from 9pm until around midnight tomorrow; and in Neath from 6pm tomorrow until the early hours of Thursday.
Light snow is expected to fall from 3pm today in Cardiff, after a morning of sleet. The Met Office predicts this will turn into heavy snow by around 9pm, and subside to light snow at around midnight.
A flurry is forecast until lunchtime on Wednesday, and again in the early hours of Thursday.
The public should be aware of possible disruption to transport, the Met Office warns.
Be prepared for a number of road closures, and for the fact others may be passable only with care. Difficult driving conditions are likely.
People in South Wales should also be braced for some disruption to road, rail and air transport, and longer journey times.
