All schools in Newtown and the NPTC Group college campus is closed today as the snow and freezing temperatures bite hard.

Police are warning people to take extra care on the roads and to only drive if necessary, with many B and minor roads in the area particularly badly affected from the weekend's snow.

Now, it is a drop in temperature today, down to -5c this morning and again dropping to -4c this evening, that will affect people.

Police have already said driving conditions are treacherous. "We would advise people to only drive if necessary," said a spokesperson.

Most main trunk roads, incident the A483, A487 and A470 are open and passable, although police and Powys County Council have urged people to be careful in case of ice.

Powys County Council glitter teams were out all day yesterday and again overnight to ensure most roads remain open.

All school transport has been cancelled across Powys our to the conditions.
