A weather warning for heavy rain and snow is in place for Huntingdonshire this morning (Wednesday).

The Met Office has warned of travel disruption as a band of heavy rain moves across East Anglia, turning to sleet and snow.

The weather warning is in place until early this afternoon.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “An area of heavy rain will extend northeast across the area later on Tuesday, easing from eastern areas on Wednesday. The rain is likely to turn to snow in places, mainly over higher ground.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected by longer journey times due to standing water or snow. Some delays to air travel due to snow are possible. There is also a smaller chance that individual homes and businesses could be flooded.”
