Wales woke to another frosty morning on Saturday after temperatures plunged.

Shoppers eager to avoid a last-minute rush next weekend are being warned to watch out for icy pavements.

Motorists in Wales have been urged to take extra care, with ice making driving conditions treacherous in some areas.

Dyfed Powys Police said the A40 Llandeilo to Broadoak road is closed and diversions have been put in place.

For those hoping for a white Christmas this year could find themselves disappointed, as milder weather looks set to return through next week.

We've had a bit of rain falling on frozen ground in some places, which can lead to ice forming first thing this morning.

For those out Christmas shopping, it could be a bit of a tricky start.

There's another cold night to come, and Sunday into Monday - perhaps even Monday into Tuesday too - but eventually we will see some milder conditions with temperatures reaching double figures.
