Tuesday 3.10pm: Peterborough was turned into a winter wonderland as the first snow of the season settled in the city overnight while Met Office weather warnings remain in place over the next few days.

Trees, roofs and streets were covered in snow overnight across Peterborough, and many readers have sent in pictures of the wintry conditions.

A dusting of the white stuff was not enough to cause major disruption, and all schools remained open.

In most places in the city there was not enough snow for children to get out their sledges or make snowmen.

A Peterborough City Council there was no disruption to any services as a result of the overnight weather.

Anglian Water engineers were called to a burst water main in Bishop’s Road in the city centre at 7.15am.

A total of 35 properties were left without water, but are expected to have their supply restored by lunchtime.

Met Office weather warnings remain in place for icy conditions and snow into Wednesday morning and during Thursday as an icy blast from the north continues.

Temperatures will remain close to freezing overnight, with highs of 5°C by day as rain, sleet and snow showers arrive during the first half of Thursday.

The Met Office warning as of Tuesday afternoon: “An increasingly cold northeasterly flow will affect eastern and central England.

“Troughs arriving from the east will bring a wintry mix of showers to many parts early on Thursday, falling onto locally sub-zero surfaces, giving a risk of icy stretches.”
