    The only major wintry spell of winter 1920-21 was during mid December 1920, when an anticycone became established over Scandinavia and pulled in a cold easterly across the southern parts of the UK. This brought snowfalls to the south as much as a foot in some places. The cold spell ended around the 20th and this was followed by an exceptionally mild spell that ran more or less almost to the end of January, resulting in one of the mildest Januarys on record.

    8th-19th December 1920 CET: 0.0

    25th December 1920-30th January 1921: 7.7

    If there had been computers and model watching in those days it would have been euphoria, and the expectation of a bitter winter, prior to Christmas, and suicidal depression after it.

    At least in 1920 very few people had any idea what the weather would be like more than a day in advance so if there were any avid cold weather fans in those days they were spared the torture which many people on here put themselves through each winter.
