Croydon escapes worst of the snow, but delays still possible

AS some motorists spent the night in their cars stranded in the snow on the A23 in Sussex, Croydon appears to have been spared the worst of the latest wintry weather.
Despite forecasts for snowfall overnight, the roads appear to be running smoothly and little snow - if any - has settled on the ground.
Despite this, train operators are warning of potential rush-hour delays. Southern, which runs trains through Croydon into central London, Surrey and Sussex, has this morning stressed that short notice cancellations and delays of up to an hour can be expected across the network today.
However, TfL is reporting a good, unaffected service on both the trams and Overground through Crystal Palace and West Croydon.
Those thinking of travelling south towards Sussex should avoid the M23 and A23, where many motorists have spent the night, stranded in their vehicles. Delays of several hours are still anticipated there this morning.
In Croydon, however, the roads are running smoothly. Advertiser news editor Gabriel Shepard just tweeted: "Traffic through Selsdon, Sanderstead, Purley and Coulsdon better than usual! #snow#croydon
Another tweeter, Sam Clayton, wrote: "It's mad. I just come from Whyteleafe and it looks like the north pole! Then go through Croydon and not a drop of snow to be seen!"
The Met Office suggests temperatures will struggle to rise above freezing today, though Croydon is expected to avoid any further snow. It is likely to get gradually warmer as the week goes on, with temperatures hitting 8-9c by Friday.
We'll keep you updated on the travel situation throughout the morning.
