There is evidence from other cities,

combination of local knowledge,
accountability, and better
connections with the rest of the

And while the snowy weather has
caused travel disruption
in areas across the capital and home
counties today, many have been
out enjoying the snow.
Hertfordshire experienced most
of the winter weather and BBC London
has been enjoying the pictures
you've been sending in to us.
Our twitter address
is @bbclondonnews and we'll try
and share some more in our later
bulletin before seven o'clock.
Let's see if the snow

Greater London area.

Many of us have seen
some snow today.
Most of the snow was quite fleeting
and turned back to rain.
Of course, that rain now
clearing eastern areas
for the rest of the day.
Still cold, still windy,
we've got a brisk and a chilly
northerly wind blowing.
Really quite unpleasant
outdoors for many of us,
but perhaps some late brightness out
towards the west.
Still feeling chilly
Clear skies, a widespread frost
developing into tomorrow morning.
And, of course, everything
will refreeze onto the
roads and pavements.
There has been quite a lot
of rain around today,
so we will see some ice form.
Watch out on untreated roads
and pavements in particular
into tomorrow morning.
Now, tomorrow, essentially a nice
day, yes it'll be an icy start,
but there will be lots of sparkling
sunshine around and we will see
a lighter, north-westerly
wind develop, too.
Top temperatures of only four,
five Celsius but altogether more
pleasant than today.
There will be another widespread
frost on Thursday night into Friday,
but Friday the air is turning
milder, but also wet and windy.
It'll be a mild end to the year.
That's it from me
and the lunch team,
Claudia-Liza Armah will be back
with our evening bulletin at 6.45.
There's more on all of our stories
on the BBC London website.
Have a good afternoon.
