Weather warning as more snow forecast to fall over Somerset today
Parts of Somerset could see a further 10cm of snow fall this evening.
The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for both ice and snow as the region prepares for more winter weather.
Outbreaks of sleet or snow have been forecast across the South West today, with forecasters predicting between 2cm to 5cm of snow in places, and up to 10cm on higher ground.
Rain fell on much of the county last night, increasing the risk of ice on Somerset's roads today with temperatures not expected to climb above freezing.

The Met Office said the conditions are being caused by a battle between the cold air over the UK and mild air trying to push in from the Atlantic, bringing the risk of both rain and snow.
Chief forecaster Martin Young said: "The atmosphere is finely balanced across south western areas of Britain, with some places likely to see heavy rain and others heavy snow on Tuesday.
"There is some uncertainty about exactly where the boundary between rain, sleet and snow will lie and everyone should continue to be aware of the risk of severe weather and plan ahead for possible travel delays and disruption to transport."
Snow is most likely to fall in Somerset this afternoon and evening, between 3pm and 9pm.
