  1. Thanks and goodbye

    That brings an end to our live coverage of today's snow, we hope you enjoyed it and we'll be back again tomorrow to do it all again.

  4. Don't get frozen out

    With temperatures struggling to get above freezing, Welsh Water has issued advice on how to protect your pipes.

    It says to make sure your stop tap is well insulated. If it freezes, you could be without water.

    A full guide is available here.

  5. Raisin the bar

    Along with a dumping of snow, Wales has seen plenty of goodwill spread around over the past couple of days, exemplified here by Cardiff council employee Dave Sultana.

    Dave usually works in waste management, but today he helped free an ambulance from the snow, rescued a stranded nurse and three other cars in the city.

    If that wasn’t enough, the Good Samaritan then drove an entire family to Thornhill Cemetery to attend a funeral after they got stranded in Penylan.

    “My manager said to me: ‘You can take your cape off now Dave, you can’t help anyone else'."

    Good on you, Dave.
