Recommended Posts

The first week of November 1925 was very mild with low pressure anchored to the west of the UK and high pressure to the east. The pressure pattern flipped around the 8th and this heralded a prolonged cold spell with very short mild interludes that was to last up to Christmas 1925.

After the first week, November was largely a dry month with frequent frosts and fogs until the last week when repeated blasts of Arctic air flooded the UK bringing severe frosts and snowfalls in places.

Snowfall depths

Hull: 6 inches

Norwich: 7 inches

Scarborough: 10 inches

During the first week of December, high pressure came to dominate with severe frosts. -11.1C at Eskdalemuir

This high pressure slipped away to the east allowing an Atlantic system to move in from the west with the first real mild spell for a month. The rapid thaw (13.3C at Valentia) caused flooding in NE Yorkshire.

The mild spell was short as another Arctic outbreak occurred mid-month with frosts and snowfalls. (13th-15th)

In the week leading up to Christmas, low pressure held sway with rain and snow in places, depths of snowfall approached 18 inches in the north.

Christmas Day itself was very cold, -7.2C as a maximum at Eskdalemuir, falling snow was reported in places.

The week after Christmas heraled a dramatic change in the weather with exceptionally mild SWly winds flooding the country with the warmest spell for over 7 weeks. 16C being reported during this spell

Some reports from Europe

Heavy snowfalls were reported across Switzerland and central France during mid November 1925. By the end of the month the whole of central Europe was badly affect by the snowfalls.

The first three weeks of December were very cold and snowy over much of Europe. Parts of the Venice lagoon was freezing over by the 6th and the Danube had frozen over by the 9th. Wolves were reportedly to have a number of villagers throughout central Europe because of the severe weather. By the 23rd, a rapid thaw had begun and there were extensive flooding throughout central Europe, the Low countries and France.

That chart from 27th Nov 1925 doesn't look too dissimilar to what we're going to see later this week.
