The long hot summer of 1933 had faded away during September and people did not wait long for the first wintry blast of the coming season to strike during late October 1933. A low pressure deepened in the North Sea (26th-28th) bring a cold Arctic flow across many parts of the UK. It was a particularly windy and unstable flow bringing wintry showers of rain, sleet, hail and snow with frequent "wintry type" thunderstorms. Snow was reported as far south as Hampstead and Dartmoor where up to 10cm had accumulated. Some places such as Oban recorded maxima as low as 4C, whilst Rhayader recorded a grass minimum of -8C.
