    There was a very cold wintry spell around mid month of November 1919 with widespread and severe frosts. There were record breaking minima with -23.3C, -22.8C and -18.3C being record on the 14th, 15th and 16th respectively. The final CET was 3.3C but on the 16th, it was a very low 2.2C

    The very cold November did not herald a cold winter, the winter of 1919-20 was mild.

    Here are a couple of Times articles from the 13th of November 1919, mentioning a thunderstorm with snow occurring at Blackpool
