Snow has fallen across parts of north east, south and mid Wales as the Met Office warns motorists to be aware of possible travel disruption.

It comes after a yellow "be aware" warning was issued advising snow was expected to sweep across mid and north Wales on Tuesday evening.

The bad weather is likely to continue into Wednesday, with up to 10cm (3.9in) of snow forecast for higher ground.

It is likely to be heaviest on higher ground, the Met Office said.

Powys, Wrexham, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Conwy, Blaenau Gwent, Monmouthshire and Flintshire are the areas which could be affected.

The latest warning follows a week of extreme weather in which snow, ice and giant hailstones brought disruption to much of Wales, while a tornado hit a Pembrokeshire town and lightning struck a house in south Wales.
