Fluffs of snow floated down on St Albans district this morning to herald the first flurries of winter.
Residents waking up to chilly 2C temperatures might have noticed that at around 8.45am, the normal dreary January drizzle gave way to light snow.
The Met Office has not forecast any more snowfall in this district today, or for the rest of this week - but has issued yellow warnings of snow and ice in Scotland until 12pm today.
There is also an ice warning for much of Britain until 11am today.
In light of the sudden wintry weather, national newspapers have been speculating about whether a second Beast from the East is on the horizon. This was a prolonged period of very cold and snowy weather which caused travel chaos around the country in 2018.
