An unexpected tumble of snow delighted Londoners as it fell onto the city in a freak April fall.

Temperatures were predicted to drop due to Arctic blasts heading south, but the snow surprised residents who would normally see sunnier weather as May nears.

Harrow resident Katherine Clementine, 25, captured the fall and said it was bizarre how fast the weather changed.

"Now it's completely stopped and it's getting bright," she said. "British weather!"

Others took to Twitter to share their amazement, with some paying tribute to late musical legend Prince in reference to the song, "Sometimes It Snows In April".
