    December 1908 had been pretty mild and unsettled right up until Christmas. An Arctic high pushed southwards into Scandinavia and this pulled a cold continental flow over the UK

    Atlantic systems pushing in from the west engaged over the UK and this produced a major snow event for many areas similiar to the early February 1996 event. Depths of snow reached a foot or more in places. Not surprising there was travel chaos as roads and railways became impassable due to snow. The 29th was an exceptionally cold day with sub-zero maxima and the night was bitterly cold with minima below -10C

    The block over Scandinavia slipped southwards and allowed a SWly airflow over the UK at the end of the year and it became milder everywhere. It was not the last snow event of that winter.
