The cold winter of 1813-14


Recommended Posts

This day 201 years ago saw "deep snow brought by an easterly wind" according to Luke Howard's diary. The winter of 1813-14 had started mild but suddenly turned cold on Boxing Day and was just starting to tighten its grip. It brought the last Thames Frost Fair and statistically looks very similar to the winter of 1962-63. You wonder if we'll ever see another winter like it. A similar scenario looks a long way off looking at the models this morning. I wrote a blog on the winter of 1813-14 last year
