The Met Office has issued a number of weather warnings across the country today, including the East of England. We are expecting very cold temperatures for Thursday and Friday, which will continue into next week. There is a possibility of snow from tomorrow afternoon from Huntingdon to Ely and southwards. We can also expect below freezing temperatures at night, with icy road and paths on untreated areas.
The general message to all is to keep warm, take care on the roads and be prepared for travel. Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Met Office have issued some advice on their websites on how to prepare for and cope with cold weather
For the north of our district, there is a possibility of tidal surge, affecting the River Nene. High tide is at 6.25am and 6.40pm on Friday. The morning tide is expected to be the highest and is predicted to hit the flood alert level and possibly the flood warning. Police MAY have to close Freedom Bridge and Town Bridge at morning tide and possibly evening tide if levels deem it to be dangerous to keep it open.
