Spring seems a long way off as freezing winds and snow make life distinctly chilly in the UK.
It was even worse for those caught out on Britain's roads on Monday night.
Many drivers on the M23 were stranded in their cars overnight.
John Hall, Gloucestershire's chief fire officer, told the BBC that his journey from just north of Oxford to Brighton by car took him 14 hours.
He said the county had virtually ground to a halt. "Of course there are still people stuck on the M23 and the A23, so they are going to be there another good few hours I would imagine."
