    Coating of ice on my car windscreen from freezing drizzle falling most the morning here near Croydon, glad I don't need to drive anywhere today

    Work has just been informed to send people home early. Train operating companies (Southern, Thames link etc..) warning of disruption and early closure due to freezing rain (it's freezing the point systems)

    Ashford and Canterbury should see Snow in next 15 minutes. 

    Fingers cross not more freezing rains. At the moment it’s freezing drizzle constantly adding to the ice layer.

    Have just seen this on Southeastern's Twitter feed: 

    SERVICE UPDATE 12:00 ⚠️ Do not attempt to travel across East Kent at the moment, a large amount of ice has built up affecting the power supply and we cannot run trains between Swanley & Ramsgate, Ashford & Ramsgate via Dover or Canterbury and Otford to Ashford #uksnow

    Well that was fun.... had a decent snow flurry about 15 minutes ago, heaviest snow fall of the week, even began to settle. 

    Gone now!

    Hope that is a sign on things to come for this afternoon! 

    Though looking at the radar, this lot of rain/snow is keeping with the theme of the week, worthing on the very edge!

    I am a big cold weather fan....but its so cold, im starting to look forward to the slightly warmer weather at the weekend!

    Absolutely, a few days is nice, a bit of chaos and disruption, but it is nice just being able to do the usual routine again.
