It now looks like Keynsham will miss the heavy snow that was originally forecast for tomorrow morning.
Highways staff keeping the roads clear in Keynsham
We are now expected to get a flurry snow tomorrow night but with sub-zero temperatures tonight, there is a risk of black ice on roads and pavements in the morning.
Bath & North East Somerset Council said: "Council staff have continued to work across services today to address issues and prepare for tonight.
"Our advice, under these conditions, remains that drivers should still stick to the main roads and bus routes and avoid untreated side roads and take extra care at all times but especially when passing cyclists and other road users.
"All crews have been out collecting today, but unfortunately very few roads other than the main roads and thoroughfares were safe enough for access by collection vehicles and the loaders negotiating the icy pavements, leaving a significant number of side roads uncollected.
"Any waste that remains uncollected today will be collected on the next scheduled collection day."
Recycling centres, including Pixash Lane in Keynsham, have been open as normal.
