    I remember this snowfall very well.

    Manchester had a snowfall during the Saturday afternoon (4th January) and it left a covering despite a predicted thaw. When I went back to school on the Monday, the playground was like an ice rink with a thin layer of ice on top. Great fun.

    It was cloudy Tuesday and was waiting for the predicted snowfall but it was slow coming and it wasn't until Tuesday evening it finally arrived in Manchester. Great watching the snow fall that night. The next morning, the snow had cleared but the predicted thaw never happened and it was a cold day (Wednesday) with snow cover.

    Can't believe, its 20 years ago now.

    According to Richard Wild's site, 20cm fell over parts of the Midlands.

    While it sounds like a good snow event, if only only 20cm fell in 36 hours than that is very dissapointing as a snow event however the chart from the following day shows that the low was filling which may have been responsible for the lack of precipitation intensity.
