North Somerset road conditions are remaining difficult but main routes are still passable with care.
It is still snowing - please email snow pics to email@example.com and I'll make a gallery, thanks
Looks like conditions will remain similar for the next few hours at least.
A council spokesman said: "We have ploughs operating on the A369, A38 and A370 removing accumulations of slush and snow, and further salt will be laid as part of this operation."
Roads currently closed are:
Totterdown Lane, Weston-super-Mare
Monks Hill, Weston-super-Mare/Kewstoke
Arundel Road, Weston-super-Mare
Officers are continuing to monitor conditions of the road network and will be arranging appropriate salting/ ploughing operations as resources allow.
North Somerset Coaches has announced its X54 is subject to delay and unable to service Silver Street, Nailsea.
