Bristol weather updates: Temperatures set to plummet
Motorists across North Somerset are being advised to take caution on roads across the district as temperatures are set to plummet.
The district has been battered by bad weather over the past week with heavy rainfall and high winds.
Many roads have been left unpassable due to floods and the heavy rain has caused landslips in Portbury.
Forecasters now say temperatures are likely to plummet with overnight possible near freezing temperatures on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.

Council highway chiefs say that this could cause already wet roads to freeze and cause treacherous driving conditions.
A council spokesman said: "The forecast for the next few days in North Somerset indicates dry but cold conditions, with overnight possible near freezing temperatures.
"This could have a significant impact on roads if sub zero road temperatures do occur.
"The already wet roads are likely to freeze and cause treacherous driving conditions.
"Gritting vehicles will be deployed as usual if the road temperature falls, but due to water run off from hills and fields the effectiveness of the salting may be severely reduced.
"Therefore the message to drivers, public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians is to take extreme caution on all roads, whether treated or not."
The council salts 29 per cent of the overall road network across the district, including the main arterial routes.
