The BBC is forecasting sleet showers for Bristol through the early hours of Thursday morning (December 2).
The latest prediction has sleet showers from 2am to 9am, during the time of a severe weather warning from the Met Office.
This yellow alert for ice runs from midnight to 10am on Thursday and covers the Bristol region as well as large parts of Wales, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
In the rest of the BBC forecast for Thursday, it says people in the Bristol area should expect temperatures to fall to 1C by 6am and only climbing to a high of 6C over lunchtime.
There could also be some rain in the morning, but a dry evening. Friday should see drizzle and light rain and a moderate breeze, with the mercury rising to highs of 11C.
The BBC forecasts a dry weekend with highs of 7C and lows of 1C in Bristol.
The Met Office also said in a tweet: “Wintry showers will bring #snow to parts of the north and east tonight. After midnight outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow will also move across Wales and parts of western England. Combined with a widespread frost these bring a risk of ice.”
In the wider South West, the Met Office is forecasting some wintry showers over the higher parts of Dartmoor overnight.
It has also flagged up the risk of gales on Saturday.
Across the UK, the Met Office says there is little chance of snow throughout the Christmas period – although there could be some wintry showers up to Tuesday, December 14.
