January 1894 produced an incredibly cold day at Armagh on the 6th: 24.4/6.3F (-4.2/-14.2C)- note comment "lowest temperature since at least 1843"; if it was that cold in Ireland from an easterly how cold was it in Britain?

The following year's famous winter on 7 Feb 1895 produced an even lower minimum 4.9F (-15.1C), but didn't produce a maximum anywhere near as low as Jan 1894.

I do remember the snow on 12th Feb 1970. I was living near Coventry at the time.

The snow on that day was a disappointment I recall. Nothing like the chart suggests. Maybe we were too far north.

"Systematical meteorological observations have been taken in Guersney during the last 50 years with standard certifed instruments and last Friday's readings broke the record for low temperatures. The mean temperature of that day was 21.9F (-5.6C) which is (excepting Thursday's, the 4th mean) 5.9F lower than the lowest daily mean previously recorded.
.....The coldest day on record previous to this cold snap occurred on February 11th 1870, the daily mean 27.3F (-2.3C)
