27 February 2018 : Shrewsbury Give Morning Pitch Update
Tuesday night's opponents Shrewsbury Town have issued another update concerning their EFL Trophy Semi-Final tie against Yeovil Town. The match is due to be played at the New Meadow tonight, with a 7.45p.m. kick-off but has been in doubt due to snow and cold weather across Britain this week. As of 9.00a.m. this morning, Shrewsbury have said that they still regard the pitch as playable:

"We are continuing to monitor the weather situation ahead of the Yeovil Town game, the pitch is soft and playable at present but the forecast is for very cold weather today and into the evening, we should have another update around 11.00a.m. today."

Shrewsbury have had pitch covers on since last Wednesday to protect the playing surface. The major issue will be that the temperature in the Shrewsbury area is not expected to get above freezing today, with the latest MetCheck forecast indicating a maximum temperature of zero degrees, with a drop down to -3C during the match itself, with a wind chill lowering the effect of that down a further three degrees.

Shrewsbury do not mention the 'midday' pitch inspection reported by Sky Sports at this stage, which may mean that's a red herring.
