Well, the forecasters predicted it, and yes although many may have been dubious, we did see snow here in west London.

And although snow is not in the forecast in the coming days, we still need to be wary of the weather.

A severe yellow weather warning for ice has been issued by the Met Office for London and south east England, and remains in place until Saturday at 12pm.

The Met Office states: "Ice is likely to form on untreated services especially where showers of sleet, snow and hail occur."

Consequently, there may be disruption to travel, so motorists are advised to take extra care on the roads.

Snow fell across London for the first time in 2017

However, as we move into the weekend it will be dry and milder, temperatures reaching as high as 8°C on Sunday January 13, with lows of 2°C on Saturday night, January 13.

For Saturday the Met Office forecasts: "A cold day with some brighter spells especially in the west."

And on Sunday and Monday: "A change to milder conditions is expected on Sunday and Monday, but generally cloudy with periods of rain."

The Met Office Tweeted a picture of what we can expect from the weather this weekend.

On the afternoon and evening of Thursday January 12 , travel networks suffered from disruption as snow fell across the capital for the first time in 2017.

Amid the severe weather warning, dozens of flights to and from Heathrow Airport were cancelled and motorists suffered tricky driving conditions.

Underground stations also suffered as a result of the weather, District and Circle line trains did not stop at Victoria station due to flooding.

The Transport for London (TfL) Victoria line Twitter account said: "W/bound District and Circle lines not serving these station due to flooding caused by heavy rain."
