With rain and the possibility of sleet last night, today sees daytime temperatures of around 6C in Newport, dropping to -1C at night.

For the next few days, daytime temperatures will struggle to get above 3C in the city and 0C in Blaenau Gwent.

At night, it is expected to get as low as -4C in the Valleys and -3C in some parts Monmouthshire while the temperature will hover around -1C in Newport.

There is a snow risk in high and low ground in mid and North Wales, but the weather here is expected to be wet today followed by a mixture of sunshine and clouds for the rest of the week.

I blame TV myself, you just can't get the people. As regards to weather, the news reports were almost gleeful that there may be snow on the way, and started with traffic chaos, gritting, icy roads, and those silly amber warning things on the screen. These people cannot be older than 30, we had 4 times as much before and still went to work, the buses still ran, and the rains were on time, and weather reporters were grown up people....

Gwent does not exist. It was a failed local government experiment. Born 1974 to universal hatred. Died 1996 - SIXTEEN YEARS AGO!
