Up to 10cm of snow is predicted over the next 24 hours, with higher ground more susceptible to receiving a covering.
Both warnings are graded yellow, meaning they are considered to be of low severity.
Gritters are likely to be deployed by North Somerset Council to ensure roads and pavements are safe for motorists and pedestrians.
