Icy streets and a Twitter "spat" between mayor George Ferguson and Cllr Tim Kent
BRISTOL woke up to icy streets this Saturday morning.
Most main roads in the city are clear, but drivers are being warned to take extra care after cold temperatures overnight turned snow on the roads into black ice.
Gritting crews continue to salt the city's priority roads in a bid to minimise travel disruption.
And although some of the snow on secondary and back roads is beginning to melt away, many of the city's hilly streets are treacherous.

The city council reports that all three Park & Ride services at the Portway, Brislington and Long Ashton are operating a normal Saturday service today.
Bristol Airport is now operating as normal again but rail and buses services continue to be disrupted.
First is operating most bus services as normal, although some have been diverted to avoid icy and hilly streets.
The company is asking bus users to check its website before travelling.
There are still no South West Trains service between Salisbury and Bristol Temple Meads.
Railway operator First Great Western said some trains are still disrupted between Bristol and London Paddington.
Passengers should again check before attempting to travel.
The M48 Severn Bridge is still closed to all traffic but the M4 Second Severn Crossing is open as normal.
The Bristol Rovers versus Exeter match set for today at the Memorial Stadium has been postponed.
Meanwhile, the Guardian is reporting a "spat" between Bristol mayor George Ferguson and the leader of the Liberal Democrat group on the city council, Tim Kent, after the decision was made not to make extra deliveries of grit.
Mr Ferguson said extra grit bins had been provided but he resisted piles of grit being dumped as it would lead to more "mess and cost".
He reportedly said it would cost an extra £20,000, while Cllr Kent argued that not providing the grit would mean some residents were "snowed in".
The Met Office still has a yellow weather warning for ice in place for today and Sunday, advising people to "be aware" of icy conditions.
No more snow is now forecast until Tuesday, when light snow is expected to fall between 6am and 12 noon.
