There will be a limited service on TfL Rail and London Overground services tonight and tomorrow.
Network Rail’s plans include reducing the frequency of trains on routes.
London Overground services will stop at 10:15pm tonight and will not begin again until 6am tomorrow.
The Gospel Oak to Barking line will operate three trains per hour.
There will only be four trains per hour between Clapham Junction and Stratford, with no service to Richmond.
On TfL Rail, services will finish at 11:00pm tonight and there will be a special timetable for tomorrow.
The first service from Ilford to Liverpool Street will leave at 7:17am, with the last return journey departing at 9:40pm.
The first service from Shenfield to Liverpool Street will leave at 7:21am and the last train will depart at 9:11pm.
In between these times a ten minute service will operate, calling at all stations.
Jon Fox, Director of Rail, said: “I’d like to thank our customers for their patience while we action Network Rail’s requirement for an emergency timetable on TfL Rail and London Overground. We are working closely with Network Rail to do everything possible to minimise the consequences of the forecast severe weather on Londoners and ask customers to check before they travel, using our website or our Twitter feeds.”
