In a statement issued this evening Friday (Mar 2) they said: “Air temps remain below freezing and road surface temperatures throughout the region are below zero. Conditions are very variable across the county. There may be more flurries of snow this evening along with sleet in parts, so roads will be icy, please take extra care.

“Additionally, we’ve been on the A483 Sugarloaf because of drifting snow, and at Waterloo Terrace, Carmarthen, because of water on road from fire crews attending fire at the Penlan building.
“Blockages on the A485 at Llanllwni/Alltwalis following an RTC has now been cleared
“Road closed from Ponthenri Bridge up to Meinciau past the Baltic due to treacherous conditions, this road will be treated in the morning.
