    Don't know if many people remember this one, but on the 27th March 1995, a notably potent northerly for the time of year hit the British Isles:

    I remember in the Tyne & Wear area seeing appreciable accumulations of snow during that morning, as the wind developed an easterly component and brought snow showers quite some way inland. Of course with it being late March and the sun being strong, it pretty much all melted during the afternoon, but was noteworthy in that snow accumulated significantly not far from the warmest time of the day. There was also large hail shortly after lunchtime as far as I remember.

    The 28th featured rather more widespread snow as a low pressure system pushed into the block, producing significant falls and accumulations on its N and E flank with northern England most heavily affected. http://www.wetterzentrale.de/archive/ra/19...00119950328.gif

    One remarkable thing about the cold snap was that it was flanked by spells when temperatures were somewhat above the seasonal average with high pressure and south-westerly influences, so the temperature contrasts were quite large in many places.

    Strangely I dont remember this. Though I am informed that it did indeed snow heavily here on that day. One event from that season I do remember though was New Years Eve 1994/95, which also brought heavy frontal snow to my area which fell mostly during the day aswell:

    Overall 1994/95 was a strange season snow-wise. Overall it was rather mild yet the few short-lived snow events that did occur produced widespread and deep snowcover.
