The Met office weather warning for the region is issued for between 3pm today, Tuesday, and 10am tomorrow.

It reads: "Sleet and snow showers will continue to affect parts of eastern and southeastern England later on Tuesday, lasting well into the night in places. Some mostly small accumulations of snow are likely. This is an update to focus the warning area further south. Expect some delays to travel, while untreated surfaces become icy, leading to an increased risk of accidents or injuries."

But, as Peterborians know, the city does have a habit of avoiding the worst of the British weather.
