More than 300 schools are closed and traffic is being disrupted as Wales sees a fifth day of snow.
Most closures are in the south east with Caerphilly, Torfaen, Merthyr, Blaenau Gwent and Cardiff worst hit.
The M4 has a 40mph speed limit between Magor (J23a) and Bridgend (J36), while the Caerphilly, Maerdy, Bwlch and Rhigos mountain roads are shut.
A yellow weather warning remains in place for much of the country with intermittent snow showers.
Councils are advising parents to check their websites for details of school closures in their areas.
Snow has fallen across southern eastern areas of Wales, including the valleys, with many people reporting it as heavy.
Areas seeing fresh snow include Cardiff, Newport, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Abergavenny, Pontypridd, Crickhowell, Aberdare and Chepstow.
Traffic Wales reports all major trunk roads are passable with care although there are hazardous driving conditions on the A470 between the M4 at junction 32, the Coryton Interchange at Cardiff, and Merthyr Tydfil.
Arriva Trains Wales said its Cardiff and Valley lines are liable to disruption at short notice.
Bus firm Stagecoach said a number of its services are facing disruption due to snow in the Cwmbran area, with only a limited service between Pontypool and Cardiff.
Cardiff Bus has announced changes to some services in the north of the city but said it was running its timetable as normally as possible even though it was facing heavy snowfall in some places.
Local authorities have said they are working hard to keep important routes open.
Some schools that are closed have special arrangements in place for pupils and students taking exams. Coleg Gwent said its Ebbw Vale campus is closed.
