A yellow weather warning is in place for parts of Cambridgeshire, with icy conditions set to hit the county over the coming days.

Issued by the Met Office, the severe weather alert warns of icy conditions that may make travelling dangerous.

The forecaster said “icy stretches likely to cause difficult travel conditions” and the warning covers most of the east of the UK for the next two days (January 4 and 5).

The alert runs from 4pm today (January 4) to 11am tomorrow (January 5).

The Met Office warns that people can expect “some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces” and “probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

Cambridgeshire, including PeterboroughEly, Huntingdon and Cambridge, is covered by the warning, which stretches as far south as the towns of Haverhill and Clare near to the southern Cambridgeshire border.

While Cambridgeshire won’t see any snow, you’ll still need to wrap up warm as temperatures are expected to plummet to a teeth-chattering -2C in some areas.
