Taking a look back in the archives - winter weather in January 2003
As we move on from the festivities of Christmas and celebrating the New Year, January is not always viewed as the best of months, with short days and long nights.
It is also a month when the climate is not always at its best.
While there can be crisp, frosty days, the weather in this part of the world can bring stormy nights of rain and, perhaps less often, snow.
Many factors affect the British weather, with the Gulf Stream, Jet Stream and even tropical rain all having an influence.
