Weather presenter Derek Brockway has warned there could be snow on the way

A weather warning for ice has been extended for parts of Wales until Sunday.

Initially, the Met Office had issued a yellow weather warning for 13 local authority areas in north, mid, south and west Wales from 16:00 GMT on Thursday until midday on Saturday.

That has now been lengthened until midday on Sunday.

The forecaster said frequent wintry showers would fall on frozen ground in many areas, leading to ice.

It also warned of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The local authorities affected are Bridgend, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire, Powys, Swansea and Wrexham.
