Temperatures have reached 12 to 13 Celsius throughout the Anglia region this afternoon, surpassing the average daytime December temperature by 6 degrees.

Following a sunny day yesterday, a warm front brought a spell of rain overnight and spread a warm sector across the south of the UK.

A warm sector describes a slice of mild and moist air that is captured between a warm front and a cold front. This normally originates in the Atlantic and is often a zone of cloudy, damp and mild weather.

This warm sector will remain in place until the end of the week when a cold front will clear it away, leading to colder, sunnier conditions by Friday afternoon.

Cambridgeshire police are appealing for help to trace a woman who has been missing since December 11th.

52-year old Wendy Simms was last seen at her home in South Parade, Peterborough, wearing a dark jacket and trousers.

Police say she is considered to be very vulnerable and are concerned for her welfare.

"We are becoming increasingly concerned for Wendy's welfare, particularly as the weather has been below freezing. Her green Ford Fiesta, registration EK04 BFU, is also missing from her home address, we believe she may be in or near it. I would urge anyone who knows where she is to contact 101."
