FURTHER heavy snowfall is expected across Huntingdonshire before the weekend.

Despite the thaw on Monday and Tuesday, the Met Office said it expects heavy snow and widespread icy roads on Wednesday and Thursday. It has warned people to be aware of the conditions, though it has not issued extreme weather warnings.

The weather will ease towards the weekend, with light rain on Saturday and sun on Sunday.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has urged motorists to beware on the roads, and to drive to the conditions.

"Previous multiple-vehicle pile-ups demonstrate that many drivers do not adjust their driving sufficiently for the conditions."

"Reduce your speed and keep your distance from the vehicle in front. You should always be able to stop in the distance you can see in front of you. If the fog closes in, lose more speed.
