The UK was under a cold northerly to northeasterly airflow during the second week of January 1977 caused by a depression over Scandinavia and high pressure over Greenland. A deepening low pressure was moving into the southwest and the frontal systems enegaged the colder air producing widespread snowfalls. In the south, the snowfalls were wet and turned to rain as the depression moved into central England although several cms of wet snow and slush did accumulate. Further north, there was drifting snow across the hills of northern England and Wales where depths of snow were approaching 20-25cm and the snow cover lasted for several days.


January 1977 was the coldest January since 1963 with a CET of 2.8

The period 1st-18th: 1.7

The winter CET of 1976-77 (1st December-18th January) was 1.9
