Thrilled residents woke up to a dusting of snow across Islington this morning, as the cold spell continues across the county.
People took to Twitter to post pictures of the borough’s landmarks sprinkled in snowflakes, or make disparaging comments about the limited amount of the white stuff.
Dee baker said: “Pitiful amount of snow in Islington. But is it enough for me to claim a snow day?”
Less than an inch fell over night as thermometers dropped below freezing.
Hermantes Basha said: “Is anyone else super excited about the snow?”

A warning has been issued by the Met Office for greater London advising that adverse weather could badly effect public transport through to the weekend, while several news outlets have predicted “Siberian winds” to bring temperatures well below freezing.
The Met Office warning forecast that snow showers could penetrate from the coast to central areas
“Rain and sleet is more likely near exposed coasts but slightly further inland local snow accumulations of 1-3 cm are possible above and around 100m.
“The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.”
