THE effects of more overnight snow are being felt this morning with another weather warning in place for Somerset.

Although there is unlikely to be much further snow today, the icy conditions will make travelling treacherous in places and are likely to cause more widespread disruption.

However, with a strong northeasterly wind it will still feel bitter. The maximum temperature will be 3 °C.

Travel Somerset says the good news is that no further significant bands of snow are expected and but says the high winds are likely to increase the risk of drifting.

A spokesman for Somerset County Council's highways team said: "We've received a further band of snow through the night. Crews have been working non-stop to tackle the accumulations. Please think before venturing out this morning."

A yellow weather warning is in place for much of the South West with ice is likely to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The Met Office says this increases the risk of accidents, as well as injuries due to falls. Further snow is likely across parts of the southwest of England, easing from the north by morning, with a few light snow showers for other southern counties for a time. It will be a fine, dry evening.

Clear spells overnight will lead to a widespread frost, with winds easing.

Some icy stretches are likely. It will be another frosty start tomorrow with perhaps some mist at first. Otherwise it will be a dry and fine day, becoming less cold.

Wednesday will remain dry, becoming less cold. It will turn more unsettled later on Thursday with periods of rain, showers and stronger winds through the end of the week.
