More bad weather is on its way to Huntingdonshire tonight with weather warnings issued for wind and rain.

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings - for residents to be aware - for Cambridgeshire lasting until noon tomorrow (Saturday).

A spokesman said: “The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel as well as trees being uprooted.

“Another storm runs northeastwards across western and northern parts of the UK during Friday and into Saturday, before clearing to the northeast.

“Around the southern flank of this storm very strong southerly or southwesterly winds are expected to develop, primarily affecting southern and southeastern counties of England.

“There remains some uncertainty in the track and timings of this system but gusts of 60-70 mph are possible with perhaps 80 mph along most exposed parts of the south coast of England.”

The Met Office’s chief forecaster added: “The associated frontal systems will bring spells of heavy and persistent rain, especially across the southern parts of England and Wales as well as further very strong winds.

“Between 10-20mm of rain will fall fairly widely in the yellow warning area during this period. Showers following into Saturday may give localised accumulations of 5 to 10mm in an hour.”

A flood alert is still in force along the River Great Ouse and Station Lane in Offord Cluny remains closed.
