Residents across Pembrokeshire are being warned of the continued potential for icy roads and pavements this evening (Thursday), overnight and into tomorrow, Friday, January 19.

Temperatures will fall below zero in many parts of the county overnight and remaining below zero until mid-morning tomorrow.

Pembrokeshire County Council gritting teams have been working continuously over the past 24 hours and will be out throughout the evening and night tonight gritting the primary and secondary routes.

Untreated roads and surfaces in particular are expected to be very icy with difficult hazardous driving conditions.

A spokesperson for the Local Authority stated: “Please consider if you need to travel on Friday morning or delay journeys until later on in the day.

“This will aid Council gritting teams to carry out their work and reduce the number of vehicles on the roads at this time.

“Please take extra care if you are out and about due to the risk of slippery services.”
