Ice is expected to form on roads in Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset later today (Monday), leading to difficult driving conditions.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning, valid from 6pm today until 10am on Tuesday.
A spokesman from the Met Office said: “Ice is expected to form overnight leading to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.”
The Met Officer’s chief forecaster added: “Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice.
“The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail at low levels, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate.”
