MUCH of the Tivyside area woke to sleet and snow showers this morning (Thursday, April 4).

The Met Office has issued a yellow alert weather warning for snow covering much of mid Wales, including parts of north Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.

Temperatures are just above freezing but will rise slowly during the day to around six degrees centigrade.

Drivers are being warned to take care on the roads, especially in the hills. The snow will slowly clear during the morning with outbreaks of heavy rain then spreading slowly north-eastwards across the area.
