Flooding in London & South East after 45mph Storm Aurore drops 2inches rain in extreme UK weather.

HEAVY downpours have flooded London and the South East today as SNOW hit the north.

The capital was soaked overnight as Storm Aurore blasted Britain with 45mph winds and dropped two inches of rain.

Snow covered the A939 in the Speyside region of Scotland this morning as traffic battled its way through the ice.

Meanwhile cars were seen wading through floodwater in Essex, London and Surrey as emergency services rushed through the downpours to a crash on the M23, West Sussex.

The washout in England also effected the South West and could spark further travel chaos with transport delays, flooding on the roads and power issues.

Surrey Police urged drivers to travel carefully in the wet conditions after a car overturned on a flooded road in Farnborough last night.

And the rain is set to continue in the west and north today with "wintry" weather over some northern hills.

Forecasters have warned things will feel noticeably colder today with temperatures expected to drop as low as 4C in Newcastle and Manchester.

The mercury is also set to plummet to 2C in parts of Scotland, with snow expected over northern hills along with hail and rain in lower areas.
