I am going for a 3-day trip to London on January 24-27 2013

Since it's my first time I don't have an idea what it is like there.

If you are living or you have been there, please answer these questions:

1. What is the weather like? Does it snow? Or just cold? About how many degrees is the weather?
2. What should I wear? Should I wear layers or just the normal clothes?
3. About how much is the food and clothes there? I plan to go shopping and can you recommend me some places I really need to see or places or shops to snag off really cheap items.

Hope for your answers :)

The weather varies a lot in London. I live just outside and work in London. Pack for all weathers. It could be snowing, you just never know until the forecast says. It'll most likely be wet/windy though and moderately cold. It's been pretty mild for 3-4 weeks. I'd go for layers.
Food and drink is expensive but where are you coming from so I can compare?
What places to see depends on your interests.Are you interested in History? If so there's so much to see.
For cheap clothes head for Oxford Street and the Marble Arch end of it where you'll find a huge Primark store.
