Nice pictures and narration. Thanks

I believe it will happen again. Someday. When is anyone's guess, we'll not know until it becomes inevitable.

Just as we get record-breaking heatwaves with the right thing happening at the right time, the same thing will happen one day in a future winter and open the gates to the East. The past winters have given us some hope that nature can do widespread Cold and Snow. If things were to be perfect, who knows what will happen?

Whether or not I would want it on such an epic scale, is highly doubtful.

Great voice clip by the lady.

The North Pennine ANOB are doing a similiar project regarding severe winters.

The snow depths/falls in 1947 make it stand out from other winter over large parts of the country. Even at low lying sites 50cm was recorded with 4 or more times that at higher levels.

Yes Finningley and Spurn Head stand out for the amount of snow at low altitude. Particularly Spurn Head right on the coast!

Finningley 9m(asl) 51 days of snow max 30cm avg. 18.8cm

Spurn Head 9m(asl) 43 days of snow max 36cm avg. 14.3cm

Its a shame there are no records from the North York Moors, it would be very interesting.

Depths over the N York Moors probably 1/1.5m deep.60/65 days snow lying.

Teesdale reached 212cm with the depth being over 1m for more than 6/7 weeks. Snow days lying just over 80 days.
