CROYDON is covered in a light dusting of snow this morning (Monday). Around 1cm has fallen across the borough, with more expected this afternoon and into the evening. Trains in and out of East Croydon are currently delayed by five to ten minutes, while Southern is reporting a slightly better service on trains through West Croydon station. There are no reported disruptions to the London Tramlink service through Croydon. Brigstock Road was closed at the junction with Boswell Road following a collision but has now been reopened, and there are reports of heavy traffic on both directions in Croham Road in South Croydon due to the roadworks on Coombe Road as steel beams in the bridge are replaced. Transport for London is not showing any disruption to bus routes, but it is understood snow is being blamed for slow-running on some services. On London Underground, there are minor delays on the Northern Line following a signal failure at South Wimbledon, minor delays on the Bakerloo line after a signal failure at Queen's Park, and major delays on the Metropolitan line between Aldgate and Baker Street following a signal failure at Farringdon. Forecasters are predicting snow will start falling in South London around midday, and continue through the afternoon. BBC Weather is warning people to expect a few centimetres of snow, while other forecasters remain divided over whether there will be significant snowfall or a small amount of sleet. You can find out which roads will be gritted on Croydon Council's website. A spokesman said: "Council gritters treated the roads on Sunday evening and were out again at 3am this morning (Monday) in advance of the predicted snow. "The team has stood down for the time being, although pavements in priority areas are being treated as a precaution. "There is still the possibility of more snow later today and through to the early hours of Wednesday morning, so we are monitoring conditions closely via regular updates from the Met Office."
