Ice and snow make for a cold weekend outlook for south east London and Surrey

Wandsworth Guardian: Ice and snow make for a cold weekend outlook Ice and snow make for a cold weekend outlook

Make the most of the hazy sunshine as snow is on the way.

Today will remain misty across south east London and Surrey with highs of around 4°C and some light rain expected in places.

Overnight, increasing easterly breezes will see the start of the cold snap.

Saturday starts out overcast and will remain so throughout the day. Light rain in the morning will turn to sleet by the afternoon and light snow is predicted by evening. Temperatures are expected to drop to 0°C overnight although strengthening winds could make it feel much colder.

On Sunday, temperatures will struggle to lift above freezing with more sleet and snow predicted for the morning.

It’s a similar outlook for Monday so expect grey skies and more the white stuff falling across some areas.

It is expected to brighten up from Monday afternoon onwards with sunny spells on the cards, however, more snow is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Care should be taken on the roads due to the risk of icy patches on untreated surfaces and check before you travel for any disruption to public transport.

Yes folks, it's January, the middle of winter and guess what? It's getting cold. We might even get a sprinkling of snow.
Get over it, there must surely be more interesting news to add to the gaiety of the nation.

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event".

"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.

Not just here either:
"Jerusalem has been suffering from stormy weather all week but then on Thursday night it added snow to its problems, with the Golden Dome in Jerusalem wearing a cap of white. In other regions of Israel, we are told, the snow pack is already 30 inches thick. Israeli media are talking about the worst storm in 20 years: across the Middle East it has killed 17 people."
h/t EU Referendum.

A dusting of snow causes disproportionate disruption to buses and trains in London. Other countries manage fine. TFL needs to get its act together.
