    There will be thicker cloud and outbreaks of light rain and drizzle spreading eastwards through this evening and overnight.

    It'll turn misty in places, with light south to south-westerly winds.

    Temperatures under clear skies initially dropping to about 9C (48F), but by the end of the night everywhere will have risen back into double figures.

    A grey and mild start to Saturday, with some patchy mist, rain and drizzle.

    As the day goes on, drier and brighter conditions should gradually spread northwards.

    Some northern parts of the region may hold on to some very patchy rain until late afternoon.

    Temperatures will range from 15C (59F), where we keep the cloud, to 19C (66F) in the best of any sunshine.

    The Battle of Britain Air Show takes place at Duxford this weekend as the Imperial War Museum continues to celebrate its 100th anniversary.


    Among the events are a flying display of more than 40 historic aircraft - including a flypast of 14 Spitfires - and a Meet the Authors marquee will also host some of the most renowned Second World War writers.

    It means - and it probably goes without saying - that traffic around the M11 Junction 10 and A505 is expected to be busier than usual. Drivers are advised to follow signposted routes to the site.

  4. Drug driving arrest following A1M crash

    A lorry driver involved in a crash on the A1M has been released under investigation after being arrested on suspicion of drug driving.

  5. Music therapy trial starts for stroke patients

    A pioneering trial for stroke patients is taking place in Cambridgeshire.

    It's the first year-long UK hospital trial to assess whether music therapy can help people recover following a stroke.

    Work is now under way at Addenbrooke's Hospital, led by Dr Alexander Street of the Music for Health Research Centre at Anglia Ruskin University.

    He said: "Just listening to patient-selected music significantly - and this is statistically significant - improves attention and language recovery and mood.

    "It's globally processed. It's like a colleague of mine once said, 'it's like a mega-vitamin for the brain'."

  14. Cambridgeshire's newspapers: Motorist drove damaged car, job fair, lorry hits building

    Here's a look at what else is making the news around Cambridgeshire today:

    • Cambridge News report that a motorist attempted to drive on the A14 after a crash had wrecked his car.
    • Peterborough Today write that hundreds of people attended a jobs fair in the city.
    • And the Wisbech Standard say a building in Soham is at risk of collapse after a lorry crashed into it earlier.
  15. Public consultation to decide preferred busway route

    A new busway for Cambridgeshire has moved a step closer overnight.

    The new route will run eight miles between Cambourne and Cambridge, and will also include a park and ride site.


    A public consultation will help to identify which of three preferred routes is selected as the final option.

    One is an off-road busway through countryside, avoiding the A428 and A1303, while a bus lane following the A428 and A1303 into Cambridge as far as Lady Margaret Way is also shortlisted.

    A third option is for an alternative on-road option - which would allow buses to travel in either direction depending on conditions - for the A1303 west of the M11.

    Francis Burkit, chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership executive board which is leading the project, said: "We as the board do not have a preferred route because we are totally neutral but we will put the options out for public consultation before Christmas."

    Another guided busway, which connects Cambridge with Huntingdon and St Ives, opened in 2011.
