Weather says "Cloudy with a bit of snow," says "Heavy snow." The British site puts it better.  Every so often when it snows in England, British Rail (or RailTrack, or whatever) claims it's the wrong sort of snow on the tracks, so their snow plough doesn't clear the rails properly and trains can't run.  This is a welcome change from their autumn "wrong kind of leaves" problem, or their summer "too hot, the rails are bent" problem.
