This bad weather started a few days ago when very cold temps and heavy snowfall hit Scotland and northern England, parts of Wales and Northern Ireland.
On Nov 28th, the Met Office reported that:
Lowest overnight temperature last night was -18.0C in Llysdinam, Powys making it the coldest November night in Wales since records began.
Scotland has been hit the worst with very heavy snow and even though they are used to heavy snowfalls and cold temperatures, this was very early in the winter for such severe weather. Edinburgh Airport is closed until at least Thursday morning due to heavy snow showers.
The snow and freezing temperatures have gradually spread to most of England now. Yesterday, snow moving across London and the surrounding areas, caused traffic chaos.
Gatwick Airport (Britain's second busiest airport) closed today! There are no flights
Snow closes Gatwick Airport
Heathrow, Stansted, Luton and London City all open, but with delays to flights. You're advised to check before you head out.
Due to current weather conditions Eurostar services are delayed by up to 90 minutes. See this Eurostar link for the latest news.
The forecast is for fresh snowfall across the majority of the country.
How is everyone faring? We've only had a smattering of snow where I live. It is very cold though.
Edited to add:
Lincoln's famous Christmas Market has been cancelled due to the bad weather. This is the first time it has had to be cancelled.
