Snow fell in southern England and Wales yesterday cancelling flights out of Heathrow and Gatwick airports, disrupting trains and causing delays for motorists.

According to the UK Met Office, temperatures are expected to be near or just below freezing throughout the weekend which means the snow will likely stick around for a while.

Higher elevations could see as much as 30 cm of snow while London was expecting about 10 cm.

Snow also fell in northern France with Paris also picking up as much as 10 cm.
