Snow update -11.15am Tuesday - 12/12/2017

Highways: Gritters have been working through the night and this morning.  All routes from Lon Parcwr and Corwen will be salted at noon. Some routes from the Kinmel Depot will also be treated.

After this time, the weather is less predictable but it looks likely that a full gritting run will take place in the south of the county tonight and a decision taken on the routes in the north.

Weather:  A very cold morning with some freezing fog patches but also sunny spells. It will become cloudier this afternoon with spells of rain and possible hill snow arriving towards the end of the day.

Rain and any sleet or hill snow will clear east through this evening allowing clear periods and showers to follow. Showers could well turn rather lengthy by the end of the night though. This morning we have gritters covering locations that are continuing to cause us problems.

  • Service 55 (Llew Jones Coaches) – Ruthin- Corwen-Llangollen-Wrexham  -  This service is now operating between Ruthin and Corwen
