Huntingdon escapes winter snowfall
HUNTINGDON has escaped the most severe wintry weather - but freezing temperatures still pose a challenge for residents.
Even though nearby areas such as Cambridge recorded up to six inches of snowfall, roads and paths in the district this morning (Monday, December 20) were relatively clear.
But temperatures of up to -7C are set to persist throughout the day, with mist and fog expected this afternoon making visibility “very poor” for commuters.
The fog is not expected to clear until after 9am tomorrow (Tuesday, December 21), with temperatures only forecast to rise to a maximum of 0C throughout the week.
Weather warnings are currently in place across the region, with the Met Office warning members of the public to take “extra care” as: “There is a continuing risk of widespread ice on untreated surfaces.”
