As temperatures fell to -5 degrees c, last night saw around 4 inches of snow fall on Islington's streets, leading to disruptions of bus, taxi and even some Tube services, leaving some club and pub-goers stranded around Angel for a time. But today's transport service are mostly back to normal with minor delays on the Tubes and most road traffic moving just a little slower than normal.
Temperatures in London are set to rise to around 4 degrees tomorrow, with no further snow predicted either during the day or tonight. There are no expected school closures or Underground or rail station closures at this time; TfL has published a statement about its cold weather provision here. Those having trouble with any other aspect of Islington life in the cold can refer to the Council's winter pages.
