Unusually frigid and snowy conditions blanketed much of Great Britain in snow earlier this month, as shown in this image taken by NASA’s Terra satellite on Jan. 26.
As of the afternoon of Jan. 21, Redesdale Camp, Scotland, was the nation’s leader in snowfall, with 11 inches (29 centimeters), Accuweather reported. Earlier Accuweather reported that 8 inches (20 cm) had fallen in Sennybridge, Wales, and 6 inches (15 cm) in Dunkeswell, in the southwest of England. The snows closed many schools and forced flight cancellations and delays at London’s Heathrow Airport.
“Snow is a relatively uncommon sight, particularly in the southern parts of Great Britain,” says this yahoo article.
