The Met Office has placed Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire are under a yellow weather warning for snow and ice.

This means that the area is set to receive a band of rain and snow followed by snow showers, so you can probably expect some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

This could mean some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces and some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services with some higher level routes perhaps becoming blocked for a time.

We have put together an hour by hour guide for snow in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire, so you’ll know exactly when to expect it and be prepared.
