More snow has been forecast for North Somerset over the next 24 hours.

The MET Office has now issued an amber warning for parts of south west England and south Wales for snow.

Forecasters say they expect outbreaks of sleet or snow will affect parts of the south west during Tuesday, extending the other parts of southern England and the south Midlands later.

Where rain or sleet is currently falling, this is expected to turn increasingly to snow during this afternoon and evening, even at low levels.

Some two to five centimetres of snow is likely in places with 10 cm or more within the amber warning area and on high ground.

This could be locally heavy and fall in a short period of time, perhaps just a few hours.

The public should be aware of possible disruption to transport.
